Payal has 5 years of experience in clinical research involving protocol design, IRB submissions, recruitment, statistical analysis, and publication of manuscripts. She is fascinated by the challenges of understanding the physiological signals from medical devices and its association with patient reported outcomes. Her interest in the study of autonomic vascular dysfunction in sickle cell disease has led to her key publications in the field.
