Research Summary

My research interests have been in the clinical pharmacology of drugs used for respiratory disease, especially asthma. Previous research had focused heavily of the pharmacodynamics, pharmacokinetics, and clinical use of theophylline, corticosteroids, andinhaled beta2 agonists in the management of chronic asthma. My current research interests relate to health care delivery and outcomes of asthma management. Additional research interests relate to idenfication of clinical syndromes often misdiagnosied as asthma, i.e., pseudoasthma.
