Bio

I am a pathologist, board-certified in anatomic and forensic pathology. My clinical and research interests focus on understanding causes of sudden, unexpected death in children and young adults. This includes sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS), sudden unexplained death in childhood (SUDC), and sudden unexpected death in the young (SUDY).

My clinical and research interests focus on understanding causes of sudden, unexpected death in children and young adults. This includes sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS), sudden unexplained death in childhood (SUDC), and sudden unexpected death in the young (SUDY). Although my primary focus is cardiac pathology in sudden death, I am also interested in mechanisms involving neuropathology and changes in the autonomic nervous system.

Currently, I am using microscopic and immunohistochemical techniques to study changes in cellular composition, gap junctions, and cellular junctions in the sinoatrial (SA) node and atrioventricular (AV) node in cases of sudden death in infants, children, and young adults.

Additional research interests include congenital heart disease, cardiomyopathy, child abuse, and asphyxia.[Shorten text]
