 Research Expertise & Professional Interests
Applying the principles of minimally-invasive medical engineering, physiology and information technology to clinical issues in anesthesiology.

– Computerized assessment of patient facial appearance to predict the ease or difficulty of endotracheal intubation at surgery.

– Improving the delivery of intravenous anesthetic agents through improved, interactive modeling of their pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics.

– Simulating free-swimming ascent from disabled submarines at depths greater than 600 feet, and improving the survivability of rapid compression and exposure to high pressure oxygen and nitrogen.

– Intelligent alarm systems for intra-operative patient monitoring.
