Areas of Interest

Artificial intelligence in cardiac electrophysiology, prevention of sudden death, mitral prolapse, PVCs and VT, autonomic modulation, ventricular fibrillation, atrial fibrillation and heart failure, early rhythm control of atrial fibrillation, stroke prevention in atrial fibrillation, device therapy for heart failure, device therapy for sudden death prevention. Procedural expertise: simple and complex arrhythmia ablation (SVT, AF, VT), epicardial catheter ablation, left atrial appendage occlusion (Watchman), device therapy including ICDs, subcutaneous ICDs, biventricular pacing, leadless pacemakers, conduction tissue pacing (His bundle, left bundle), cardiac contraction modulation (CCM) therapy, and laser lead device extraction.


It gives me great satisfaction to help individuals with heart rhythm disorders. My area of clinical practice, which is cardiac electrophysiology, is additionally rewarding because of its breadth, scientific and technological depth, and the opportunity to team with multiple professional disciplines in treating patients with cardiac arrhythmia. Although much of my time is spent in the cardiac electrophysiology laboratory performing procedures, it’s the interactions I have with my patients that inspire me the most. The environment at UNC Chapel Hill is great for teaching, collaboration, research and innovation, aspects of my work which I also value.
