My major area of research is cardiovascular disease prevention. I am particularly interested in improving detection and control of hypertension. Since assessment of blood pressure begins with measurement, my studies often include out-of-office BP measurement techniques including 24-hour ambulatory BP monitoring and home BP monitoring.

I am also interested in obesity prevention, and in another line of research am examining the effectiveness of food labeling policies (such as calorie-labeling) on people's food and physical activity decisions.

As a family physician, I enjoy providing full-scope primary care (acute care, chronic illness care, preventive services) to patients of all ages and from all walks of life.
