Biography

My clinical interests include intrauterine growth restriction, neonatal nutrition and persistent pulmonary hypertension of the newborn. Additionally, I have an interest in improving the care of neonates throughout our region through the Perinatal Outreach Program

Research

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.
