Research Interests

Cardiovascular Epidemiology

My research focuses on issues related to screening and risk assessment for cardiovascular disease with a particular interest on biochemical and genetic factors. I work closely with several large-scale epidemiological studies, including:

  • Emerging Risk Factors Collaboration (a collaborative meta-analysis of individual data from several prospective studies);
  • Reykjavik Prospective Study (a large prospective study of middle-aged men and women in Iceland)
  • Pakistan Risk of Myocardial Infarction Study (a case-control study of gene-lifestyle interplay in myocardial infarction in Pakistan).

I am also the scientific coordinator of the Natriuretic Peptides Studies Collaboration (a collaborative pooling of individual participant data on natriuretic peptides and cardiovascular disease) and involved in planning epidemiological studies of cardiovascular disease in previously understudied populations.
