I'm an early career physician and public health researcher interested in the risk estimation and risk mitigation of cardiovascular diseases at the population level. I started my journey to cardiology by studying risk factors of cardiovascular events in patients with type 2 diabetes. As part of my combined MD-MPH thesis, I studied whether addition of other inflammatory markers can improve current risk stratifications of cardiovascular events or not. Afterwards, I got an early career grant from National Elites Foundation and continued my work on surveillance of non-communicable diseases in Iran. I also served as a co-PI and epidemiologist for a population based cohort called Metabolic Syndrome Complications, and Mortality (MetSCoM). In 2018, I joined One Brave Idea, an initiative by AHA, as a post-doc with the aim of harnessing the power of precession medicine to identify individuals at risk of cardiovascular diseases at early course of disease and offer them targeted therapies.
