Following my training, I joined the staff at Boston Children’s Hospital. My clinical focus is on neonates and children with congenital heart disease. I partner with Dr. Fynn-Thompson in the cardiac assist device and heart and lung transplant programs. Additionally I work as an intensivist in the cardiac intensive care unit. My research is focused on utilizing autologous umbilical veins as a shunt or patch material in neonates with complex congenital heart disease requiring surgery. My lab also focuses on development of devices to improve the safety and effectiveness of cardiac surgery, developing new transplant therapies and lung tissue engineering efforts to improve ECMO and oxygenator technologies.
