Summary of research interest:
During my fellowship at Boston University, I pursued several tracks of clinical sleep research with Dr. Dan Gottlieb. I was involved with the multi-center APPLES (Apnea Positive Pressure Long-term Efficacy Study) trial at the Brigham and Women’s Hospital site and also explored associations between obstructive sleep apnea and oxidative stress in patients enrolled in the Sleep Heart Health Study. I left Boston University after fellowship in 2007 to practice community-based pulmonary, critical care and sleep medicine at Emerson Hospital in Concord, MA. While I continue to practice sleep medicine on a limited basis at Emerson, I returned to a full time academic position at BU in March 2009. I am currently involved in the expansion and refinement of the BU/Boston Medical Center multi-disciplinary sleep program.
