I am a clinical and research cardiologist specializing in the comprehensive management of co-existing cardiovascular disease and cancer, a sub-specialty known as Cardio-Oncology. I currently serve as the Medical director of Cardio-Oncology for Indiana University Health System. I treat and manage the unintended cardiac side effects of chemo-, immuno-, and radiation therapies. Through close collaboration with the cancer treatment team, my goal is to ensure the best outcomes for patients with cancer at risk for or concurrent cardiovascular disease. I work closely with the hematologist, oncologists, and radiation oncologists to monitor our patient’s cardiovascular health during treatment and provide long-term follow-up cardiac care for cancer survivors. I also offer cardiac evaluation for patients with cancer who are scheduled to undergo major surgery or to receive potentially cardio-toxic cancer treatment. I also see childhood survivors of cancer as they transition into adulthood to treat cardiovascular issues in survivorship.

My clinical research focuses on providing earlier detection of cardio-toxic side effects of cancer treatment through specialized labs and cardiac imaging tests. I am dedicated to finding new ways to prevent, diagnose, and treat cardiac disease as a complication of cancer treatment. My clinical research focuses on the long-term effects of platinum-based chemotherapies and the unintended side effects of chest radiation.
