    Research Areas
    • Clinical pediatric cardiology
    • Echocardiography
    • Cardiac catheterization
    I have a primary interest in clinical patient care involving children and adolescents with congenital heart disease.  I am also in charge of both undergraduate and post MD sub-specialty training for our sub-specialty at UBC.  My focus has been in the area of echocardiography (cardiac ultrasound) and cardiac catheterization.
    Current Projects
    I am primarily involved with students/residents in facilitating their case reports and research efforts.
