I am a pediatric cardiologist at Children's Healthcare of Atlanta as well as a medical officer at the CDC's National Center on Birth Defects and Developmental Disabilities. When not seeing patients, I direct outcomes research activities using big data in a variety of domains among individuals with congenital heart disease, including newborn screening using pulse oximetry, neurocognitive outcomes, and long-term outcomes / quality of life across the lifespan. In addition, I have particular interests in the use of predictive analytics, technology, social media, and digital health in medicine, and I have received a "Healthcare Hero" award from the Atlanta Business Chronicle for development of PulseOxTool, a mobile app that helps providers in the screening of critical congenital heart disease.
