Scientific Focus

Current Research and Scholarly Interests

Non-diabetic pregnant women who had episodes of blood glucose excursions had larger babies. An expanded study is on the way to measure the effect of blood glucose excursions on rates of operative deliveries.

We used a new pyrosequencing technique to identify a comprehensive list of vaginal microflora in uncomplicated pregnancies. This catalog can aid future research on effects of vaginal flora on pregnancy complications.

We compared a novel dosing of misoprostol administered orally in a two-step dose to traditional mono-dose vaginal route and found out that patients have a higher satisfaction rate, lower complication rate, and have a lower cesarean delivery rate on oral medication.
