My interest is in the epidemiology of rheumatic diseases, with an emphasis on spondyloarthritis. Previous work has included study of risk factors for gout, and comorbidities of rheumatic diseases, and adverse events with nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medications.
Under the mentorship of Drs. Neogi, Felson and Choi, I was awarded a project grant from the Arthritis Foundation to describe the association of ankylosing spondylitis with cardiovascular disease, and to understand possible mechanisms for the associations. This work revealed an increased risk of myocardial infarction with use of NSAIDs, which I presented at national and international conferences. My future work will continue to focus on adverse events with medication, including an assessment of factors that lead spondyloarthritis patients to select a medication, and a cost-effectiveness analysis including patient values, side effects, and costs of treatment for spondyloarthritis.
Answering these questions has the potential to improve longevity and quality of life for patients with rheumatic diseases, though a better understanding of the factors most important to patients. With my background in research, clinical training in rheumatology, rigorous research environment in the section of Clinical Epidemiology, and my mentoring team, I hope to continue my development as an independent clinical researcher with a focus on inflammatory rheumatic diseases.
