My research focuses on sleep in children. I study the effect of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) on cardiometabolic risk, neurocognitive deficits and quality of life, as well as the impact of treatment for sleep disorders on specific health outcomes and the promotion of healthy sleep habits. I have developed a research program with interdisciplinary collaborations to explore sleep issues in children with chronic conditions, including neurodevelopmental disabilities and genetic or metabolic conditions. One current focus is the evaluation of sleep issues in children with cerebral palsy, an understudied population. One of the few clinician-scientists in pediatric sleep medicine in Canada trained in epidemiology, I have established a large longitudinal research database for our pediatric sleep laboratory - the only such cohort in the country. Our studies completed to date using this unique longitudinal cohort confirm its value as a springboard for future studies on obstructive sleep apnea and its treatment in children.
