“As a Cardiologist with a special interest in Heart Failure and Transplant medicine, this is an exciting time to be practicing medicine. Having completed an Advanced Heart Failure/Transplant Fellowship at a leading Cardiac Transplant Centre in the Alfred Hospital, Melbourne, Victoria, I now take pleasure in caring for patients with the heart failure syndrome in an era with emerging, evidence-proven medicines. I have taken a special interest in Cardiac Amyloidosis as well as Heart Failure with reduced ejection and preserved ejection fraction (HFrEF & HfpEF).

I am also a member of the dynamic Cardiac Imaging team at Heart & Vascular having completed a Fellowship in Echocardiography at Flinders Medical Centre.”
