Personal Interests

 I am just starting out medical school but I have always been interested in working in the Pediatric field and more recently my interest in pediatric cardiology has been growing. I hope to foster both these interests during medical school and through my research work.

Research Interests

I am interested in cardiac physiology and how it interplays with exercise physiology and aging.
