Current Projects

Demystifying Interstitial Lung Disease: Does Computerized Interactive Assessment Affect Learner

Experience and Retention for Radiology Residents

Extensive Research Description

My personal research interests are in adult congenital heart disease, particularly in longitudinal evaluation of regional cardiac function in repaired Tetralogy of Fallot. Additionally, I am interested in the optimization of imaging and appropriate radiation dose modulation in the evaluation of interstitial lung disease by high resolution chest computed tomography.
