Professional Summary:

As the Division Director of Maternal-Fetal Medicine, my purpose is to continue the legacy of excellent perinatal care that has been established at the university. I will also be growing the services available and recruiting faculty members to join the team. We will focus on research both on a basic science as well as clinical projects. We will be updating many systems within the division, while facilitating the transition to the new locations over time.

I am interested in hypertensive diseases of pregnancy, and also infectious diseases and antibiotic use in pregnancy. I have done research relating to dosing of antibiotics for Group B streptococcus in pregnancy. I am also interested in the molecular basis of pre-eclampsia, and how the placenta creates the pathology during pregnancy. I plan to explore certain endothelial growth factors which may be the causative agents for pre-eclampsia, and eventually be a focus of treatment for the disorder.

I have experience in leadership, and in my last position oversaw the development and maintenance of a perinatal diagnostic program for the southern half of New Hampshire. I have also been director of labor and delivery of a busy tertiary center in Boston. I bring these skills to help build and sustain the perinatal center at Women & Childrenā€˜s Hospital of Buffalo.
