I completed a post-graduate degree in public health from Yale University with a focus in epidemiology and biostatistics; clinical fellowship in pediatric cardiology from Nationwide Children’s Hospital (Ohio State University) and non-invasive cardiac imaging at Children’s Hospital Boston (Harvard Medical School). My interests include clinical pediatric cardiology and non-invasive cardiac imaging; including echocardiography and cardiac magnetic resonance imaging as well as application of the newer modality of deformation imaging in congenital heart disease. In addition to my clinical and research interests, I direct the medical student clerkship in pediatric cardiology, is the course co-director for Echocardiography Didactic series and Echocardiography bootcamp for fellows and is a co-director of Fellow Education in Imaging. I serve on the Advisory Editorial Board for the journal Pediatric Cardiology.[Shorten text]

Academic Focus

My research interests include application of the newer techniques of deformation imaging (strain and strain rate) in pediatric heart disease with an aim to gain insights into patterns of myocardial dysfunction. I am also interested in the utility of tissue characterization and stress perfusion analysis by cardiac MR to evaluate rejection and vasculopathy post cardiac transplant.

Clinical Focus

My clinical interests include the use of non-invasive cardiac imaging; including echocardiography, fetal echocardiography and cardiac magnetic resonance imaging to evaluate and manage children and adults with congenital heart disease. I am also involved in developing a center for excellence in pediatric coronary artery anomalies and the cardio-oncology clinic at Lurie Children's Hospital
