Areas of Research Interest

Clinical epidemiology in obstetrics, applying a broad array of research design and analytic techniques such as regression analyses, decision science, economic analysis, and time-dependent techniques to some of the challenging questions in clinical obstetrics. These have included patient selection and intrapartum management of patients attempting vaginal birth after cesarean (VBAC), measures of glycemic control which can predict adverse neonatal outcomes in diabetic pregnancies, and diagnostic algorithms for pulmonary embolism in pregnant women.

Her current research focus has been on electronic fetal heart rate monitoring, and its association with adverse neonatal outcomes. Her RWJF Physician Faculty Scholars Program project, “Prediction of Fetal Acidemia with Intrapartum Fetal Heart Rate Monitoring,” will be examining features of Category II EFM recordings and their ability to predict outcomes. She aims to incorporate these findings into improving the use of the most commonly utilized instrument, EFM, in all of obstetrics.
