Research Focus

Asthma is a multifactorial disease with both genetic and environmental risk factors. Understanding how the early life environment influences lung development and asthma risk will aid us in developing treatments and mitigation strategies aimed at preventing children from getting asthma.

Research Interests

- Developmental origins of asthma
