Simulation • medical education • clinical trials • expert systems

Research Focus

My research focuses on the clinical application of new therapies and technologies in Critical Care Medicine. I am also investigating the application of simulation-based-learning in medical education with the goal of improving patient safety. My other focus involves the application of computer assisted medical decision making and automated patien-machine interfaces.
