Studies have included children with cystic fibrosis, sickle cell disease, cerebral palsy, congenital heart disease, liver diseases, inflammatory bowel disease, HIV/AIDS, osteoporosis and obesity. In addition, our research group investigated the growth and developmental patterns of healthy children to establish reference standards for nutrition, growth, body composition, bone health and energy expenditure and requirements.Her clinical expertise is in nutrition and growth-related complications of chronic disease, nutrition support of hospitalized children, and long term advanced nutrition support of children.
