Clinical Interests: Dr. Parikh is a noninvasive cardiologist and echocardiographer. She completed internal medicine training at Tufts-New England Medical Center and cardiovascular training at Harvard-Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center. Her primary clinical interests are in primary and secondary prevention and cardiovascular diseases in women including heart disease in pregnancy.
Research Interests: Dr. Parikh is a cardiovascular epidemiologist and population scientist. She has an MPH in epidemiology and biostatistics from the U.C. Berkeley School of Public Health and did her post-doctoral research fellowship at the Framingham Heart Study. In her NIH/NRSA supported work, she demonstrated in the Multi Ethnic Study of Atherosclerosis that the hemodynamic changes of pregnancy may not revert back to normal, may be cumulative across successive pregnancies, and can lead to left ventricular remodeling on cardiac MRI in mid-life. Supported by grants from both the American Heart Association and the NIH/National Heart Lung and Blood Institute, she is currently working to develop risk stratification tools that can be employed as an 'early window' into later cardiovascular disease risk in women. She is utilizing data from the Women's Health Initiative Observational Study and the Swedish Population Registers to develop and validate these risk tools. She is also interested in discovering specific mechanisms and pathways that link adverse pregnancy outcomes such as preeclampsia and preterm delivery with subclinical and overt cardiovascular disease in women via metabolomic and epigenetic techniques.
