Research Summary

My clinical research interests are in the prediction and mitigation of postoperative cardiopulmonary complications. Globally, postoperative complications occur at a high rate, exacting a high toll on patients, healthcare providers, and healthcare systems. My aim is to further characterize risk factors and develop cost-effective tools to identify patients at high risk for cardiopulmonary complications.

Extensive Research Description

My current research interest is identification, quantification, and mitigation of perioperative complications. Shifting the paradigm of preoperative risk assessment to a precise, individualized and patient centered approach is one of my areas of research interest. In addition, I am interested in estimation and characterization of perioperative pulmonary complications, particularly in the care of previously neglected medical populations.
