Bio

As a neonatologist, I am interested in understanding how prematurity and/or neonatal factors contribute to cardio-metabolic disease. We are active collaborators with investigators in the Georgia Prevention Institute and lead clinical projects focused on improving utilization and outcomes in patients undergoing extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO).

Teaching Interests

I am keenly interested in medical student, resident, and fellow education and have developed curriculum to teach neonatal physiology, research study design, biostatistics, and professional development. As a member of the College of Graduate Studies, I am also interested in the education of undergraduate, graduate, and post-doctoral research fellows and currently serve as a thesis mentor for graduate students in the Vascular Biology Center
