Description of Clinical Expertise

Echocardiography and cardiac MRI

Description of Research Expertise

I am interested in the application of novel cardiac MRI and echocardiography techniques to understand atrial and ventricular mechanics/remodeling in pathological states and cardiac MRI imaging of fibrosis.
