My research involves elucidating mechanisms underlying the pathogenesis of sleep apnea, with particular foci on ventilatory instability and sleep apnea in patients with heart failure. I am currently investigating the mechanisms responsible for the emergence of oscillations in breathing, and working to develop a clinically-applicable means to measure ventilatory instability and the other traits responsible for sleep apnea. I further aim to establish the mechanisms underlying several promising treatments for sleep apnea, that will ultimately provide ways to predict responders to treatment.
