Research Interests

My research interests focus primarily on genetics and genomics of cardiovascular disorders with a particular emphasis on essential hypertension and its complications.

I am also interested in genetic and environmental background of sexual dimorphism in cardiovascular risk (why men develop and die of cardiovascular disorders more frequently than age-matched women).
