My research focuses on clinical and epidemiological studies in the area of diabetes and pregnancy. With collaborators, I completed an assessment of diagnostic tests and their costs for gestational diabetes with a study population of 5480 women. Dr. G. Egeland and I evaluated the long-term maternal and daughter risks and outcomes after gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) (99 affected and 100 control pairs). Presently, I have been involved in planning and participating in research evaluating the effect of sleep apnea on outcomes of women with and without GDM. and evaluating preventive therapies for women post-GDM and their families in Canada and India.
