Bio

For the last 20 years, my research has focused on measuring and improving long-term outcomes in neonates, infants, children, and adolescents with complex congenital heart disease (CHD). Mortality rates have fallen significantly in the CHD population resulting in a large population of survivors. I am an international expert on cardiac intensive care, resuscitation, and the impact of neurodevelopmental, psychosocial, and physical morbidities on quality of life (QOL), functional status, and behav...[Read full text]For the last 20 years, my research has focused on measuring and improving long-term outcomes in neonates, infants, children, and adolescents with complex congenital heart disease (CHD). Mortality rates have fallen significantly in the CHD population resulting in a large population of survivors. I am an international expert on cardiac intensive care, resuscitation, and the impact of neurodevelopmental, psychosocial, and physical morbidities on quality of life (QOL), functional status, and behavioral/emotional outcomes in the high-risk complex CHD population. I have a special interest in long-term outcomes in single-ventricle survivors. I have led and participated in multiple NIH and other foundation funded studies assessing modifiable predictors of long-term outcomes in the high-risk complex CHD population. I have advanced training in public policy and clinical epidemiology. As Co-Director of Research and Academic Affairs within the Heart Center at the Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children's Hospital of Chicago I lead research and academic affairs, pursue work as a principal investigator in cardiovascular research and mentor fellows and faculty in the Heart Center. My ardent goal is to create academic and research infrastructure to assist fellows and faculty in the Heart Center to have successful academic careers and improve patient outcomes and family experience. My major contributions to science include QOL assessment and neurodevelopmental outcomes in pediatric and CHD survivors, single ventricle CHD outcomes, and resuscitation science.[Shorten text]
