Research Interest/Area of Expertise

  • My area of research is developmental neuropsychology.  I focus on adverse events occuring during pregnancy, delivery and the newborn period on the cognitive, language, memory, and motor functioning of preterm-born children.  Through the study of the influence of birth asphyxia, intrauterine growth restriction, neonatal respiratory dysfunction, brain bleeds, multiple birth and other complications of preterm birth we gain knowledge about brain vulnerability and resilience during early development.
