Research Interests

My empirical work has been in the areas of cardiovascular, clinical and genetic epidemiology. I mainly focus on understanding risk factors for and consequences of mineral metabolism disturbances in the general population and in chronic kidney disease. I am also interested in identifying risk factors for and potential treatment options to address the disproportionate burden of cardiovascular disease in the setting of chronic kidney disease.
