ABOUT ME

My clinical interests include the non-invasive assessment of congenital heart disease in the fetus to the adult, with a particular focus in fetal cardiology and patients with single ventricles. I am the director of Duke Pediatric Noninvasive Cardiac Imaging and I am an attending physician in the Duke Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance Center. I am an American citizen who was born in England and raised in Canada. I have lived in the United States since I received my undergraduate education at Cornell University. I joined the Duke Children’s Heart Program in 2004.

Clinical Focus and Research
MY RESEARCH INTERESTS

My research investigates changes in cardiac function with exercise, assessment of myocardial mechanics (in collaboration with the North Carolina State University College of Veterinary Medicine), and the best care of newborn infants with prenatally diagnosed heart disease that balances infant stability with family bonding. I am equally committed to cardiovascular education -- I also investigate methods to best deliver cardiology training to the global health community.
