My research interests include the genetic epidemiology of sleep disorders. We are utilizing data from the Framingham Heart Study to conduct genome-wide association testing and related work to uncover novel genes that are involved in sleep phenotypes.

My clinical interests are in sleep medicine, including the diagnosis of sleep disorders such as obstructive sleep apnea and insomnia. I perform bronchial thermoplasty and advanced diagnostic bronchoscopy including EBUS and ENB at the VA Boston Healthcare System.
