    Collapse overview
    As a Neonatologist, I specialize in care for infants born at the edge of viability as well as infants born at term or earlier with congenital defects or other conditions that need specialized intensive care. My research focus is neonatal nutrition specifically evaluating how our smallest premature babies grow during their hospital stay. I am interested in optimizing nutrition for these babies to promote excellent growth and improved outcomes.
