My current research is focused on understanding how genetic, neurochemical and structural changes that occur in the brain following myocardial infarction contributes to an overactive sympathetic nervous system and consequently disease progression. Current research projects include identifying and understanding the function of specific cytokines and their role in furthering heart failure progression.

Another area of interest is the blood brain barrier and its integrity in heart failure.
