Research Summary

My research involves studies of nutrition, growth, energy metabolism, and body temperature regulation of newborn infants. Recent projects include studies of methods of measuring body energy expenditure and the effect of diet on energy utilization and body composition during growth. Current research involves study of oxygen delivery and utilization in anemia of prematurity. Other aims include improving decisions about transfusing anemic preterm infants, reducing the need for transfusion, and identifying safer techniques of transfusion. I am also interested in multicenter clinical trials and lead our group's participation in several such studies.
