My research program primarily aims to harness the power of biomedical signals and respiratory physiology in order to better understand and improve various aspects of respiratory care in extremely preterm infants, particularly non-invasive respiratory support provision and control of breathing.
1. Detection of Respiratory Events using Acoustic Monitoring in preterm infants on continuous positive airway pressure: the DREAM Pilot Project.
2. Post-Extubation Assessment of Clinical Stability in Extremely Preterm Infants (PEACE).
3. The ‘More Hugs, No more Wires, Smart Pajamas’ Project.
