As a neonatologist, my clinical specialty is neonatology with specific interests in neonatal infections and blood transfusions. My research areas include toxicology, pharmacometrics and microbiome.
My research is a natural extension of my clinical practice because it promotes evidence-based diagnoses and therapy. One of my goals is to understand the role of early antibiotic exposure on the overall health of neonates. My research aims to increase our understanding and rationale for managing neonatal abstinence syndrome.
One of my accomplishments is the provision of a webinar for the College of Clinical Pharmacologists. My work has been published in several well-respected journals, including the Journal of Clinical Pharmacology, BMJ Open Quality, Scientific Reports, Journal of Parenteral and Enteral Nutrition, Pediatrics, Journal of Pediatrics and Journal of Immunology.
I have been with Cincinnati Children’s for more than 26 years. Collaborations with clinicians and non-clinicians are welcome.
