    I am a basic scientist with special interest in clinical and epidemiological population studies focusing on ethnic phenotyping of cardiovascular pathophysiology related to hypertension, arterial stiffness and cardiac impairment (echocardiography). My research particularly includes novel biomarkers and early predictors of cardiovascular disease aiming to contribute to the prevention of early incidence in sub-Saharan Africa.
