In addition, I am interested in exercise medicine and exercise testing. I am interested in determining appropriate exercise parameters for children with heart disease, cardiac changes from intense sports training and in cardiac rehabilitation in the pediatric population.

The prevention of sudden cardiac death in the pediatric population, pediatric ECG screening (newborn, sports and ADHD ECG screening), and public use of AEDs is another focus of my clinical care.[Shorten text]
