Research synopsis: 

As the population of patients with advanced heart failure grows, the gap between the number of patients awaiting heart transplantation and the number of available organs will continue to grow. Left ventricular assist systems (LVASs) are an effective way of supporting these patients, but much remains to be learned about how these systems should best be managed. I am particularly interested in better understanding the physiology and hemodynamics of LVASs, including their impact on the right ventricle and the pulmonary circulation. I am also interested in using automated techniques, including machine learning, to interpret data obtained from LVASs in order to guide patient management.
