Research Summary

I have multiple research interests related to Pediatric Otolaryngology. Most recently my interests have involved clinical trials for pediatric obstructive sleep apnea as it pertains to obesity, novel medications for the ear, and novel devices to insert ear tubes. I am also interested in CMV and it's effects on hearing. Historical Otolaryngology, single sided deafness, and novel surgical techniques round out my other endeavors.
