    Research Interest(s)

    My interests include identifying genetic and metabolic mechanisms associated with adverse pregnancy outcomes such as preeclampsia, preterm birth and low birth weight and with complications of prematurity such as patent ductus arteriosus and respiratory distress syndrome. I am interested in how current prenatal and newborn screening, which is universally used to detect mainly rare and inherited disorders, can be used to identify subgroups of women (for prenatal screening) or newborns (for newborn screening) at risk for adverse birth outcomes such as preterm birth and complications of prematurity.
