Biography and Education


I am interested in neonatal pulmonology and control of breathing and have special interest in bedside monitoring of cardio-respiratory events in preterm infants. I am currently actively collecting data for funded clinical studies related to predictors and consequences of cardio-respiratory events/intermittent hypoxemia in preterm infants. In collaboration with biomedical engineering, we are developing neonatal cerebral blood flow and oxygenation sensors to monitor brain hemodynamics. I am also the site PI for multi-center studies related to neonatal pulmonology/Bronchopulmonary Dysplasia and Respiratory Distress Syndrome/Surfactant. In addition to being a full time faculty, I am completing my PhD in Clinical and Translational Science University of Kentucky.
