Research Experience: The Neonatal Research Lab, Brigham and Women s Hospital, Harvard Medical School Postdoctoral Fellow for Dr. Amir Lahav Consented parents and collected, organized, and analyzed data outcomes for premature infants enrolled in the Biological Maternal Sounds study. These outcomes include: respiratory, nutritional, parental stress, NICU noise levels, neonatal brain development, and auditory attention. Lead researcher on a project examining preterm infant attention prior to NICU discharge. Mentored undergraduate students and research assistants in the lab on research methods, data collection, and helped with manuscript preparation. Contributed to several lab manuscripts, see publication section. Communication Neuroscience Laboratories, University of Kansas, Research Assistant for Dr. Steven Barlow Collected, organized, and analyzed data in sensorimotor systems physiology of suck and early feeding skills in premature infants with respiratory distress syndrome, intraventricular hemorrhage, hypoxic-ischemic events, and craniofacial anomalies.
