My research interests include the use of technology, such as insulin pumps, continuous glucose monitors, artificial pancreas systems and telemedicine, to improve diabetes control in children. I have a particular interest in the impact these devices have on sleep in both the child with diabetes as well as other family members. I believe that type 1
diabetes is a family disease and everyone in the family can be impacted when a child is diagnosed and I am interested in ways to decrease the burden on the family. I am also interested in ways to improve access to diabetes care for patients and families regardless of their location or socioeconomic status, such as through the use of telemedicine to increase the patient’s ability to have contact with the clinic. I am currently supported by a NIH/NIDDK K12 award to pursue my research interests.
