Research Interests

Dr. Flora’s clinical focus lies in advanced bronchoscopy and interventional pulmonary procedures. He is well versed in medical thoracoscopy and transbronchial cryobiopsy, having performed the most cases of any interventional pulmonary fellow in his year. Dr. Flora is active in clinical research, with plans to advance the field of Interventional Pulmonology by incorporating fluid dynamics and engineering research in assessing current interventional techniques and creating new therapeutic options for airway diseases. He continues to pursue his interests from fellowship involving Histoplasmosis and its effects on lung cancer diagnostic accuracy, as well as expanding treatment of airway diseases resulting from broncholithiasis and fibrosing mediastinitis.
