Personal profile

Research Interests

I am a pediatric cardiologist and electrophysiologist, originally from Chicago. My wife's family and my family both live in the midwest and I have two children.

My research focuses on the genetics of heart rhythm and heart muscle diseases. You can learn more about my research team and our interests at the web page for our lab group:

I treat patients who have heart rhythm disorders, with a focus on inherited cardiac disease. In addition to seeing patients in clinic, I perform cardiac catheterization, which is the process of placing wires inside the heart to diagnose and treat electrical disease. In addition, implant and manage pacemakers and defibrillators, which are electrical devices that are inserted under the skin to manage problems with the heart's electrical system.
