Research Interests

Dr. Smith’s research focuses on investigating the pathophysiological mechanisms of obstructive lung diseases in order to improve clinically meaningful outcomes. Obstructive lung disease (e.g., chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, asthma) represents a leading cause of morbidity and mortality globally, and in Canada. His research integrates methods of population-based epidemiology, state-of-the-art-imaging, and physiology in order to understand disease pathogenesis and expose targetable mechanisms of functional impairment.

His specific areas of interest include:

  • airway structure and developmental susceptibility to obstructive lung disease;
  • the personalization of obstructive lung disease prevention and treatment based on airway anatomy;
  • the cardiotoxic effects of breathing mechanics in obstructive lung disease.
  • Clinical and academic interests include improving the quality of lung cancer diagnosis and staging, and medical education.
