Dr. Bigsby's research focuses on the actions and facial expressions used by infants to signal their wants and needs to caregivers, and the relation between these behaviors and regulation of physiologic functions such as heart-rate and oxygen saturation. Other research interests include developmental interventions and outcomes for preterm infants in the NICU, feeding issues of early infancy, and the relation between early motor development and maternal life style.
I am a pediatric occupational therapist with a career-long interest in infant development. Current focus is on improving outcomes for infants in the NICU, through developmental assessment and interventions and developing an interdisciplinary approach to initiating and progressing breast and bottle feeding.
