Fellows, Current and Past
Research: I am excited to link together my research skills with my interests in teaching and clinical care of infants/young children. In my fellowship research project, I am conducting medical education research program under the supervision of Dr. Lynne Huffman, to evaluate whether an immersion education experience improves pediatrics resident education over and above usual clinical teaching about the use of a standardized infant neurological examination -- Hammersmith Infant Neurological Examination (HINE) -- to detect abnormal infant neuromuscular development. I also conduct a scoping review of the characteristics and effects of immersion education, the Academic Half-Day (AHD) teaching method in postgraduate medical trainees under the mentorship of Dr. Lauren Hubner. I will incorporate the results of these studies in my plans to teach and assess pediatricians and residents in Japan.
Research: I am curious about how to improve clinical care for children with mental health and behavioral challenges. I am especially interested in understanding how developmental-behavioral pediatricians can support primary care providers in caring for children with common mental health disorders such as anxiety and depression. My fellowship research project will investigate the patterns of how primary care providers prescribe medication for children with anxiety and depression.
Research: I am interested in reading abilities and reading disorders including its comorbidities. I am especially interested in understanding them in neurophysiological and clinical level and correlating them. In my fellowship research project, I plan to investigate behavioral problems, their association with later reading abilities, and their association with measures of white matter pathways in school-age children born preterm and at term.
