    CLINICAL INTERESTS
    My clinical interests are echocardiography and hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM). I direct the UCSF Echocardiography laboratory and co-direct the UCSF HCM Center of Excellence. I have expertise in transthoracic, stress and transesophageal echocardiography. I also have training and expertise in 3D and strain echocardiography. I treat patients and families with HCM with a special interest in evaluating patients and family members with suspected HCM. I also use advanced imaging to evaluate athletes with abnormal appearing hearts to separate physiologic from pathologic changes.

    RESEARCH INTERESTS
    My research is focused on early diagnosis and risk prediction in HCM. I also have an interest in using strain echocardiography for early diagnosis, monitoring disease progression and prognostication in a variety of cardiac diseases, particularly, cardiomyopathies and heart disease in athletes.
