Current Research and Scholarly Interests Along with my internal medicine and pediatrics background, I have always been interested in palliative care and end of life. I would like to apply these interests to pediatric cardiology and adult congenital cardiology, as these patients often are critically or chronically ill, and would benefit from a palliative care perspective.
