Published over one hundred peer reviewed publications in the area of respiratory physiology & served two terms as the Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Applied Physiology. His recent research has been dedicated to oral appliance therapy (OAT) to address the needs of OSA patients who are dissatisfied & non-compliant with CPAP. A key factor inhibiting the widespread use of OAT is the challenge of determining which patients will respond to this therapy.
