My interests lie in cardiac imaging including transthoracic, transesophageal, and fetal imaging, inpatient care and continuing care of children with acquired and congenital heart disease. My research interests have included the use of cardiac catheterization in the post heart transplant patient, evaluation of the Kawasaki Disease guidelines, and physician adherence to guidelines. I hope to expand my research endeavors, both at a local and a national level, to include preventive cardiology, quality improvement and outcomes of children with acquired and congenital heart disease.
