I am a graduate of B. J. Medical College, one of the top ten medical schools in India. I did my internship at Ahmedabad Civil Hospital, a 2800 bed hospital and one of the largest community hospitals in Asia. I got the opportunity to rotate at Massachusetts General Hospital, Tufts University, SUNY Downstate Medical Center, and Brown University as a sub-intern. After those rotations, I spent a year in learning epidemiology and research statistics at Brown University, Rhode Island, USA. I also volunteered as a Research Assistant at Brown University for one year and at University of Miami Miller School of Medicine for six months in Department of Cardiology. Currently, I am a cardiovascular fellow at University of Miami Miller School of Medicine/Jackson Memorial Hospital. My interest in the field of clinical research lies in Quality Improvement projects. My research project on ‘Gender and Health Insurance Disparity in ICD utilization’ was selected for Fellow with Highest Scoring Abstract Award at Heart Rhythm Society. Another project on ‘Impact of Annual Operator Volume on Percutaneous Coronary Intervention Outcomes in High Risk Subgroups’ was selected for best of the best abstract at Society for Cardiovascular Angiography and Intervention Scientific Sessions 2014. I was also awarded by Eric N. Prystowsky Clinical Research Award for my research project on ‘In-hospital complications associated with catheter ablation of atrial fibrillation in the United States between 2000 and 2010: analysis of 93 801 procedures’. I am also proficient in different methods of statistical analysis - Multivariate Logistic and Cox-regression analysis, Global measure of model fit, Discrimination, Calibration, Reclassification, and Markov modeling for cost effective analysis. In my free time, I guide medical students for their USMLE preparations and teach them statistical analysis for clinical research.

Research Interest

My research is focused on determining optimal clinical strategies and identifying opportunities to advance the quality of health care in a cost-effective way. I am also interested in epidemiology research with an intention to improve our knowledge of various cardiovascular and non-cardiovascular diseases. Using the national administrative database, I have also sought to identify various hospital characteristics to improve cost-effectiveness and outcomes of specific clinical approaches and procedures.
