I am a clinical cardiac electrophysiologist with a focus on the ablation of complex arrhythmias including supraventricular tachycardias, atrial fibrillation and flutter, and ventricular tachycardia, and I am Director of the Yale Atrial Fibrillation Program. I am also interested in implantable cardiac devices for cardiac arrhythmias and heart failure, including pacemakers, implantable cardioverter defibrillators (ICDs) and cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) devices. I have a Masters of Public Health degree with a concentration in biostatistics and epidemiology from Johns Hopkins and a Masters of Science degree in health services research from Stanford. I have published extensively on topics of comparative effectiveness, cost-effectiveness and clinical outcomes in cardiovascular diseases, with a particular focus on cardiac arrhythmias, cardiac electrophysiology and exercise physiology. I have research funding from the National Institutes of Health and the American College of Cardiology to study the safety and effectiveness of therapies for the prevention and treatment of atrial fibrillation, ventricular fibrillation/tachycardia, sudden cardiac death, stroke and heart failure.
