I am an interventional cardiologist with a specific focus on the diagnosis and treatment of patients with vascular disease, and I perform coronary and peripheral angiography and interventions. I have a broad background in cardiovascular site-based research, multicenter clinical trials, clinical event classification, and observational analyses.  Currently, I am helping to lead a Duke Clinical Research Institute (DCRI) effort to coordinate a multinational, multicenter randomized clinical trial evaluating antiplatelet agents in the treatment of patients with peripheral artery disease. I have served as a physician reviewer for the
Clinical Events Classification (CEC) group at the DCRI and have been the Assistant Director of CEC since 2015. I am also the medical director of the Duke Heart Center Clinical Research Unit that manages each clinical research cluster including Cath Lab, EP, Heart Failure, General Cardiology, and Imaging.
