Mary has published articles in dynamic therapeutic areas including the paradigm shift in the treatment of heart failure; technological advances in neurology, especially closed-loop neurostimulation as well as new ways that make brain-sensing more widely available; how digital health can get removed healthcare from its silos to improve outcomes in chronic diseases; atrial fibrillation (exhaustively) and lung cancer, the final frontier in interventional medicine, among other diverse topics. A graduate of Smith College, Mary is ever the advocate of the benefits of a liberal arts education.
