Research Interests

My research interests include studying the way the heart pumps in children with congenital heart disease. I am also interested in the outcomes of children with single ventricle heart disease at increased altitude, compared to children living at sea level.

Clinical Interests
My clinical interests include the care of children and teens with congenital heart disease, and especially those with single ventricle heart conditions. I also spend time reading cardiac ultrasound (echocardiography) and cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).

Care Philosophy
My approach is to help educate families and empower them to make informed decisions about their child's healthcare. I am lucky to be part of a multidisciplinary team that cares for children with single ventricle hearts, based on the unique needs of these kids and young adults. Our emphasis is on wellness - both of mind and body.
