She is an NIH-funded investigator studying the effects of neonatal lung injuries and infections on lung immune responses, alveolar growth, and adult pulmonary outcomes. Her research centers around the the effect of early life events on postnatal lung development. Her clinical research is focused on preterm children with chronic lung disease and pulmonary hypertension.
