Research Summary

My research interests span three areas:

  1. Clinical research in therapies for congestive heart treatment and clinical outcomes in heart transplantation. I am affiliated with the Yale Heart Failure and Transplant Center;
  2. Studies in heart rate variability as a method of noninvasively probing cardiovascular autonomic regulatory mechanisms in health and disease. This research includes classical methods of time series analysis as well as more recent methods based on chaos/complexity theory and nonlinear dynamics;
  3. Studies of health care access by African Americans and other minority populations in relation to cardiovascular disease.

Specialized Terms: Congestive heart treatment; Heart rate variability; Minority population cardiovascular health care access
