Research Interest
My research interests are related to the care of patients with heart failure and pulmonary hypertension. Particular areas of interest include clinical outcomes such as adverse events associated with ventricular assist devices.
Clinical Interest
My clinical interests are in the evaluation and management of patients with heart failure and pulmonary hypertension. This includes patients requiring heart transplantation and mechanical circulatory support such as left ventricular assist devices (LVADs). I have a particular interest in the prevention of patients at risk for developing heart failure.
