Biography:

My research focuses on establishing the clinical applicability of two new diagnostic parameters (to detect coronary artery disease) using a set of bench-top experiments, computational analysis, pre-clinical and clinical trials in our research group. These proposed diagnostic parameters based on fluid dynamic principles, pressure drop coefficient and lesion flow coefficient, have the potential to make a real paradigm shift in clinical decision making related to cardiovascular intervention. As part of my research involving pre-clinical and clinical trials I had collaborated with clinicians and scientists at College of Medicine, University of Cincinnati and at Cincinnati Children's Hospital and Medical Center. Preliminary results from these studies have concluded the clinical applicability of these parameters to distinguish between stenoses of various severity.
More recently, at Weill Cornell Medical College, I am working on using 3D printing, machine learning and computational fluid dynamics to predict and prevent coronary artery disease from non-invasive CCTA imaging data.

Research Interest: 3D printing, Computational fluid dynamics, clinical radiology, non-invasive CCTA scanning, machine learning, interventional cardiology, applied mathematics, bio-heat transfer
