Research Overview

My academic interest is in the field of respiratory physiology. I am focused on projects that result in better understanding of respiratory support and therefore more efficient and effective use of existing technology in the intensive care unit. I currently work in the Arnold Lab. We use technology such as electrical impedance tomography (EIT) to better understand regional distribution of ventilation and pulmonary compliance on different levels of support (both invasive and non-invasive). I am currently the Principal Investigator in a multicenter collaboration using EIT and other non-invasive measures to better understand how high flow nasal cannula effects pulmonary mechanics. Other projects include using the T3 data system to develop models of computer aided mechanical ventilation and decision support at the bedside. The overall goal is to provide better patient care and ultimately build protocols and evidence-based guidelines, which will benefit the field as a whole.

In addition to this primary research focus, I have also undertaken several QI projects, including revising the respiratory care protocols for the hospital. I have participated in designing an educational and credentialing curriculum for Pulmonary Medicine group, specifically with regard to the use of non-invasive ventilation on the pediatric floors. I am on the Education Committee for the American Thoracic Society and am the Pediatric and Neonatal Associate Medical Director for Boston MedFlight.
