    Collapse Overview
    I am an advanced heart failure and heart transplant cardiologist who has expertise in the management of patients with heart failure and pulmonary hypertension, heart transplant, and mechanical circulatory support devices. I am co-Director of the UCSF Comprehensive Amyloidosis Program, and the clinical cardiology lead for the UCSF HHT Center of Excellence. In addition to my expertise in heart failure and cardiomyopathies, I developed a specific focus in cardio-oncology (management of cardiovascular issues in cancer patients).

    My research interests focus on cardiac amyloidosis and in understanding risk predictors and outcomes of cancer patients with heart disease.

    Altmetrics Details PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication.
