Frank P Sgambati, MS

Senior Research Data Manager

Frank Sgambati graduated with a mechanical engineering degree from University of Binghamton. His interest in spectral analysis of brain wave activity during sleep along with the analysis of large data sets led him towards a masters in statistics from University of Maryland Baltimore County. He has now been working for Johns Hopkins University for over 10 years and is the Senior Research Data Manager at the Center for Interdisciplinary Sleep Research and Education (CISRE).

His previous research identified associations between methylenedioxymethamphetamine (MDMA) and sleep disordered breathing. He has also contributed in developing automated scoring criteria for Periodic Leg Movement of Sleep (PLMS) from bilateral EMG leg recordings for the Johns Hopkins Center for Restless Legs Syndrome. He is currently supporting research along the spectrum of upper airway obstruction during sleep from alleviating snoring with low level CPAP therapy to treating sleep apnea with hypoglossal nerve stimulation.
