•Interventional, Non-Surgical Cardiology
•Single Ventricle Heart Disease
•Outcomes Research in Congenital Heart Disease


My research has centered on assessing the short-term and long-term outcomes in children with complex congenital heart disease.  I have focused on three distinct areas: (1) outcomes following catheter-based cardiac interventions, especially balloon valvuloplasty for aortic valve stenosis (2) predictors of survival for children with single ventricle heart disease (3) novel cardiac device development.
