I began my faculty career at the University of Pittsburgh in 2016. I joined the University of California, San Diego (UCSD) as an Associate Professor with tenure in 2021. My research has focused on evaluating clinical and economic outcomes of oral anticoagulation and studying pharmaceutical pricing. I have published over 100 peer-reviewed scientific manuscripts with 70 as first or senior author. Some of these articles have been published in top-tier journals, including JAMA, Annals of Internal Medicine, JAMA Internal Medicine, JAMA Oncology, JAMA Neurology, JAMA Dermatology, Health Affairs, and Stroke. My research has been covered by media worldwide, and has been featured in the main US outlets, including New York Times, Washington Post, NPR, CNN, Forbes, BBC, ABC, CNBC, or Bloomberg.
I am the PI of a K01 and an R01 to study oral anticoagulation use in atrial fibrillation. I was tenured and awarded my first R01 as PI at the age of 30. I was recently selected as the 2022-2024 National Academy of Medicine Fellow in Pharmacy. In 2021, I became the first pharmacist to be recognized with the Academy Health Alice S. Hersh Emerging Leader Award. This recognition is one of the highest honors for early-career health policy scholars. In 2018, I was recognized on the Forbes 30 under 30 list. I am a fellow of the American College of Cardiology and the American Heart Association.
