I have expertise in the pathobiology of cardiac dyssynchrony and impact of cardiac resynchronization therapy. I also have expertise in using cardiac MRI to assess myocardial motion. I have much experience in using large animal models and performing complex surgical procedures for acute and survival protocols.
