Profile

Research interests:

I have developed a method of dynamic vectorcardiography to quantify repolarization lability and showed an association between increased temporal lability of repolarization and sudden cardiac death in the general population. I have also developed a marker of electrical remodeling (SAI QRST) and showed an association of SAI QRST with ventricular arrhythmias in heart failure. My lab is examining electrophysiological substrate of cardiac arrhythmias and is developing ECG risk score of sudden cardiac death in the general population.  

Current funding:

NIH NHLBI R01 Novel ECG Measures and Risk of Sudden Cardiac Death

Current postdoctoral fellows:

Muammar Kabir, Ph.D.

Principal investigator of the following ongoing clinical studies:

Ancillary ARIC and CHS study “Novel ECG Measures and Risk of Sudden Cardiac Death”

 Risk stratification of sudden cardiac death in the end stage renal disease.

ICD-EGMs study

Mechanical alternans study
