I completed my postgraduate training in cardiology from the All India Institute of Medical Sciences, New Delhi. I then underwent fellowship training in paediatric cardiology at Children’s Hospital Boston, USA (1994-1996).
My clinical interests are diverse because of the unique requirements of the population I serve. This includes echocardiography, catheter interventions and intensive care. My chief research interests relate to epidemiology of paediatric heart disease in the developing world and developing cost effective clinical strategies for diagnosis and treatment of paediatric heart disease in developing countries.
