After completing my medical training at Albany Medical College, I entered pediatric residency training at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital. I spent one year working in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at Morgan Stanley Children’s Hospital of Columbia University Medical Center, focusing on the care of neonates with congenital heart disease. Prior to coming on staff, I completed pediatric cardiology fellowship at Children’s National Medical Center in D.C, followed by a senior fellowship in cardiovascular critical care here at Boston Children’s Hospital. My clinical and research interests include anticoagulation in the cardiac ICU, mechanical circulatory support, and the care of neonates with cardiac disease.
