Research Activities: 

As a Pediatric Anesthesiologist and Pediatric Pain Physician (Acute and Complex Pain) my main research interests are finding ways to improve our current assessment and management of pain for pediatric patients undergoing painful surgical or procedural interventions. I am involved in studies focused on perioperative pain management, ultrasound guided pediatric regional anesthesia and  pediatric complex pain research initiatives. Other research interests include perioperative use of ultrasound including transesophageal doppler, ultrasound guided central line placement and antral sonography.
