My research focuses on the identification and treatment of perturbations in upper aerodigestive physiology that impede an infant’s ability to successfully breathe and orally feed. As part of this line I have worked in the development of non-invasive diagnostic technologies designed to guide precise and personalized dysphagia care among infants born premature, those with congenital heart defects, spinal muscular atrophy, and those suffering from chronic respiratory deficits.
