Assistant Professor

Clinical interests : My clinical interest include adult congenital heart disease (ACHD) and cardio obstetrics. Additional areas of interest include noninvasive cardiology, trans thoracic and trans esophageal echocardiogram.

Research Interests: My research interests include understanding clinical and imaging predictors of adverse outcomes in adults with congenital heart disease particularly patients with single ventricle. By correlating imaging findings with clinical data and outcomes, I aim to unravel the intricate relationships between anatomical complexities, physiological adaptations, and overall patient well-being. With a focus on understanding the long-term implications and prognostic factors associated with congenital heart disease, quality of care and patient outcomes can be improved.
