Research Activity
I became committed to a career in health-oriented research during my neurology residency training at New York-Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell (NYPH/Cornell). Through my clinical work, I became interested in improving our limited ability to accurately identify the mechanism of stroke. This knowledge gap meant that the etiology of ischemic stroke in many patients was unknown and, as a consequence, the appropriate treatment for secondary stroke prevention was uncertain. During residency and fellowship, I published studies evaluating the risk of ischemic stroke in relationship to clinically occult mechanisms such as subacute bacterial endocarditis and cancer. Since my appointment as a faculty member at NYPH/Cornell in 2016, I have remained dedicated to evaluating the relationship between occult cardiovascular disease and cryptogenic stroke because of the paucity of data on this important clinical topic. My preliminary data, gathered with support from grant funding, have led me to hypothesize that silent myocardial infarction may be a novel stroke risk factor. To further pursue this hypothesis, I have established collaborations with investigators in cardiology, vascular neurology, and neurobiology. Thus far, I received extramural funding from the American Heart Association and a KL2 career development award from the NIH, and the Leon Levy Foundation which are allowing me to obtain further training in research methodology.
