My research currently focuses on sleep health disparities. I am investigating differences in sleep habits by race and socio-economic status and the relationship with sleep apnea and sleep apnea treatment. My clinical interests are complex sleep disordered breathing diagnosis and treatment and sleep disorders in chronic pulmonary disease. I also have an interest medical education research, looking at education in end-of-life care during medical school and residency as well as medical professionalism. A current project evaluates the effects of the hidden curriculum on burn-out and cynicism during training. I am involved in medical student, resident and fellow education and training in pulmonary and sleep medicine.
