I went to medical school at the Universidad Nacional De Asuncion in Paraguay. I completed my Pediatrics residency at the Bronx Lebanon Hospital in New York. After I completed my pediatric residency, I went on to complete two Fellowships: Neonatal-Perinatal Medicine and Pediatric Critical Care and a third fellowship in Pediatric Cardiology, which I completed on June 30, 2016. Currently I am at Texas Children Baylor College of Medicine as an Assistance Professor in the department of critical care. My Neonatal-Perinatal Medicine Fellowship, Pediatric Critical Care Fellowship, and Pediatric Cardiology fellowship have provided me with a thorough clinical background. I am confident that my training and experience have provided me with the skills and knowledge to be a valuable asset to the Cardiovascular Intensive Care Unit serving newborns with Congenital Heart Disease, and patients with Congenital Heart Disease in general. I would like to enhance my foundations in research by becoming a pioneer in fusing the randomized control trial (currently the gold standard way to perform research in the medical field) with big data which I believe to be the future Key to Self-learning Health Care Systems. This would be a novel means of performing research in the congenital heart field and I believe it to be the most efficient, cost effective, and the best way to answer clinical research questions for the congenital heart patient population.
