My current research is on improving diagnosis and care of pediatric patients with narcolepsy. Projects include 1) studying the effects of disrupted sleep on the daytime function of patients with narcolepsy, 2) development/validation of diagnostic and treatment surveys/questionnaires for narcolepsy. More broadly, we are working on projects that identify sleep biomarkers on nocturnal polysomnograms that can aid in diagnosis of neurological/neurodevelopmental disorders.

PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
