Her early research career focused on spinal cord and brain development after injuries such as spinal cord injury and perinatal hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy. During her residency training, her clinical research focused on studying autonomic dysfunction in children with autism spectrum disorders and neurological complications during extracorporeal membrane oxygenation.
