About Me

I joined the Penn State Health Children’s Hospital in 2019 as an assistant professor of Pediatrics. My research focuses on newborn respiratory medicine, and I am investigating the regulation and functional differences of surfactant protein A and receptor SP-R210 variants in chorioamnionitis, oxidative stress, and mechanical ventilation in a neonatal mouse model of bronchopulmonary dysplasia. I am also studying extracellular vesicles as nanoparticle mediators of intercellular crosstalk involved in bronchopulmonary lung injury. I have conducted and published clinical trials on various ventilation modes and am the site principal investigator for an international NICU multicenter clinical trial. I am also working to establish the Penn State Preterm Infant Biobank to support current and future research. In addition, I lead NICU quality improvement projects and mentor medical students, residents, and fellows at the Penn State College of Medicine.
