My research focuses on pediatric infectious diseases with my expertise and special interest in pediatric critical care medicine and pediatric respiratory medicine, predominantly those that are common in resource limited settings. My research has a particular focus on childhood pneumonia, tuberculosis, bronchiolitis, asthma, sepsis, malnutrition, enteric encephalopathy and diarrheal complications (i.e. hypernatremia, hyponatremia, hypokalemia, hypocalcemia, ileus etc). I have a particular interest in low cost innovative work and their scale up in resource limited settings in reducing under-five childhood mortality especially from pneumonia, sepsis and malnutrition. As a clinical researcher my further aim is to help our junior hospital colleagues to be involved in innovative low cost research work that we can translate those in our clinical services.
