sleep apnea • pregnancy • cardiometabolic consequences • biomarkers
My research focuses on the cardiometabolic consequences of sleep apnea in the general population and in pregnancy and has been involved in clinical epidemiological studies. I am also interested in the treatment implications of sleep apnea in order to improve health outcomes through randomized controlled trials.
