    Collapse Overview
    I am an Assistant Professor in the Division of Pediatric Cardiac Surgery at UCSF. I perform operations on and care for patients with congenital cardiac anomalies with an outstanding world class team here at UCSF. We care for infants, children, teens and adults with congenital heart disease. My research interests are focused on patient specific computational modeling of congenital cardiac malformations, CAD or Computer aided design modeling to improve surgical treatments for congenital heart disease. I am honored and fortunate to provide care for patients with congenital heart disease here at UCSF.
