Personal profile

Research Interests

As a pediatric electrophysiologist, I follow pediatric and adult congenital patients with all types of arrhythmias. In addition, I am interested in exercise medicine, exercise testing and cardiac rehabilitation. I am interested in determining appropriate exercise parameters for children with heart disease, cardiac changes from intense sports training, exercise prescription and in cardiac rehabilitation in children with heart disease. I am interested in prevention of heart disease and have a Preventive Cardiology Clinic that focuses on hyperlipidemia, obesity and hypertension in the pediatric patient.
