He is ranked in the top 0.081% of authors globally, for expertise in OSA, based on the quality of his papers since 2010 ( In other work, he was the first in the world to evaluate the impact of OSA on arterial stiffness and with other collabaorators, the first to use a CPAP withdrawal paradigm to better understand the health consequences of OSA and the first to explore pharmacological weight loss in OSA.
