Research Interests
My research interests are primarily focused on investigating mechanisms of lung and lung blood vessel growth and injury in prematurely born infants. My research projects in this area explore genetic risk factors for impaired lung blood vessel growth and development of chronic lung disease in these infants. I am also investigating predictors of chronic lung disease and more sensitive measures to detect and measure disease severity. My other research projects employ molecular microbiome analysis to investigate the contribution of different bacteria to ventilator associated pneumonia.

Information for Referring Providers
Clinical Interests for Referring Providers: My clinical interests include management of acute and chronic lung disease in children, especially chronic lung disease of prematurity, as well as the management of pulmonary hypertension.

Research Interest for Referring Providers: My research interests are primarily focused on investigating mechanisms of lung and lung vascular development and injury in infants born preterm. My research projects in this area explore genetic risk factors for impaired lung vascular development and chronic lung disease, biomarkers of disease, including the airway microbiome and endothelial progenitor cells, and physiologic measures of lung disease. Other research projects employ molecular microbiome analysis to investigate the microbiology of ventilator associated pneumonia.
