Philosophy of Care

I believe that the best knowledge and skills in Cardiac Electrophysiology, and personal care are important for the best patient care. I will continue to improve myself by keeping abreast with literature, practice, learning from outstanding EP colleagues, research and teachings. I promise to do my best to improve my patients’ health.

Clinical Interests

My research is focused on complex arrhythmia mapping and ablation and ion channel diseases. My clinical and translational research focuses on cardiac electrophysiology.
