Research Interests

Heart failure is a major worldwide health concern and is the leading cause of hospitalization among elderly Americans. Approximately 50% of those diagnosed with heart failure have heart failure with preserved ejection fraction (HFPEF). HFPEF presents a therapeutic dilemma because pharmacological strategies that are effective for the treatment of heart failure and reduced ejection fraction have failed to show benefit in HFPEF. Aerobic exercise is an emergent treatment modality that may help improve left ventricular diastolic function in these patients. My research focuses principally on the effects of exercise intensity on markers of diastolic dysfunction and vascular function in patients with heart failure and preserved ejection fraction.
