My research interests build upon my work on thermal therapies and preclinical imaging with applications to cardiovascular disease and cardio-oncology. The lab’s goal is to understand the cardiovascular modification caused by disease and treatments using multimodal imaging techniques to provide new strategies for early detection, monitoring, and mitigating of cardiovascular damage caused by cancer and cancer treatments.
