I function as epidemiologist for the Division of Neonatology, providing ongoing assessments of the prevalence trends of risk factors, diseases and complications for our NICU and its affiliates. I also serve as the major statistical resource for clinical investigations in our NICU and have developed models to test hypotheses in a variety of projects related to respiratory care modalities, infectious disease surveillance, and the newborn consequences of poverty-related epidemic diseases. My current projects focus on modeling newborn renal function in preterm infants, developing predictive models of CPAP failure, ROP development, and the analysis of cardiorespiratory instability events in relationship to neonatal disease. I am also involved in projects that explore the role played by neutrophil gelatinase-associated lipocalin in developmental renal function.
