Research Bio

My research interests include intrauterine growth restriction and how this entity may affect an infant later in life. I am interested in how maternal nutrition during pregnancy as well as post-natal nutrition may have effects on physiology and disease both in the neonatal period and later in life. I am also interested in neonatal resuscitation, specifically maximizing the benefits of chest compressions during resuscitation and developing real-time tools to assess the effectiveness of chest compressions during resuscitation.
