My primary research interest centers around laboratory testing in the pregnant patient including new ways to assess fetal lung maturity. Currently, there is no means by which to predict whether or not infants will be born with RDS. Other projects include collaborations with EUH faculty to assess hemostasis in the pregnant patient and risk of fetal demise.
