    Summary

    Cystic Fibrosis (CF) is my area of interest in research. I have conducted quality improvement to optimize nutrition care in CF and am keen to develop and participate in future projects.

    Current Projects
    • Pulmonary Exacerbations have a Long Term Impact on Growth in Children with Cystic Fibrosis (self-funded)
    • Retrospective review of growth parameters of CF patients before and after a pulmonary exacerbation and to identify factors associated failure to return to baseline growth trajectory (submitted as abstract to 2013 North American Cystic Fibrosis Conference)
