    Collapse Overview 
    Collapse Overview
    I am an Advanced Heart Failure and Transplant cardiologist, and the Director of Heart Failure Disease Management at UCSF. I have clinical expertise in evaluating and treating patients across the spectrum of heart failure disease severity, including those who require mechanical circulatory support or heart transplantation. I have a particular interest in developing chronic disease management programs to improve clinical outcomes and quality of life in patients with heart failure. These include initiatives to expand the use of remote monitoring technologies and platforms, to optimize the application of guideline-directed medical and device therapy, and to improve access to care and transitions of care.

    My research interests include the use of biomarkers in understanding response to therapy and outcomes in heart failure, evaluation of novel remote monitoring and therapeutic devices, and approaches to improving delivery of care to broad patient populations.

    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.
