I am committed to providing the best clinical care to our patients and their families.  I believe excellent care is provided in a multidisciplinary arena incorporating our patient’s families. 

Clinical Interests:

My primary interest lies in applying fundamental physiological principles to the care of critically ill children in the intensive care setting.  I currently provide clinical services in the cardiac intensive care unit.

Research Interests:

My research interest stem from my clinical interest.  I am vested in understanding hemodynamic principles in critically ill children through the analysis of large physiologic databases.  Further, I have interest in the coagulation and hematological processes in the congenital heart disease patients.
