Dr. Pham’s research focus is on the mechanisms and impact of sleep disordered breathing, with a particular emphasis on the role of hypoxia. His research interests have led him to the highlands of Peru, where he collaborates extensively with the CRONICAS cohort investigators to characterize the impact of hypoxia on respiratory patterns, cardiovascular responses and metabolism. He is currently involved in developing low-cost readily deployable strategies to treat sleep disordered breathing at high altitude. He has also pursued his research interests by modeling the metabolic impact of ambient hypoxia in the sleep lab.
As a member of the leadership of the Center for Interdisciplinary Sleep Research and Education (CISRE), he is committed to improving investigators’ access to sleep recording and data analysis.
