Description of Research Expertise

I completed advanced combined fellowship training in Pediatric Heart Failure/Transplantation and Exercise Physiology at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. My research experience primary involves the epidemiology and outcomes of cardiovascular disease in children with heart failure and heart transplantation. I am most interested in better understanding the role of safe exercise in children with heart failure and congenital heart disease.
