RESEARCH FOCUS

I am presently the only individual in the Southeast with dual fellowship specialized training in pediatric otolaryngology and laryngology.  I have expertise in pediatric and adult voice conditions as well as a strong interest in the treatment of airway disorders in children and adults.  My research interests focus on novel laryngeal electromyography techniques and outcomes from pediatric and adult major airway surgery.
