    Personal profile

    Research interests

    Children with unilateral hearing loss have been noted to have an increased tendency to have educational or behavioral problems. I am investigating whether unilateral hearing loss is the cause of these problems, or whether other associated factors put these children at risk for problems in school. Related topics include the health-related quality of life in children with hearing loss, both unilateral and bilateral; and differences in auditory processing among children with unilateral hearing loss. My other research interests include topics within pediatric otolaryngology that intersect with clinical epidemiology and health services research. 

    Clinical interests

    Otitis media, choanal atresia, chronic middle ear disease, hearing loss in children, tonsillitis, sleep apnea, head and neck masses, airway problems in children, sinus, endoscopic sinus surgery


    I have been a mentor to medical students in the Summer research program, Gateway Explore curriculum, and Washington University Predoctoral TL1 program. In addition, I have mentored Audiology graduate students during their Capstone projects and mentored residents/fellows in the Otolaryngology T32 program, as well as during their research rotations. I am happy to collaborate with students and residents from other departments on multidisciplinary projects that involve Otolaryngology.
