After graduating Cornell Medical School, I completed my internship at Albert Einstein College of Medicine and my residency/fellowship in Anesthesiology at the University of Pennsylvania. I remained on U Penn faculty from 1980-1983 and then joined the Dept of Anesthesiology at Yale. My main research interests currently involve: 1) noninvasive monitoring of blood flow in patients and healthy volunteers, with special focus on autonomic influences on microvascular regulation and the assessment of volume loss; 2) improved assessment of patients with a uniform scale for assessing specific disorders and systemic disturbances.
