Description of CVI Expertise

CVI Program Unit(s):
Cardiovascular Development / Congenital Heart Disease
Pulmonary Vascular Disease

CVI Research Description:
I am a pediatric cardiologist at The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia where I practice in the Echocardiography Laboratory.

My research area of interest is on outcomes in tetralogy of Fallot.

I am also investigating determinants of right ventricular function, with
emphasis on the volume-loaded ventricle.
