About Me

Biomedical Engineer

Designing non-invasive optical neuromonitoring technologies to guide pediatric critical care.

The focus of my research is the development of non-invasive optical tools to identify critical periods of neurological vulnerability and to direct individualized clinical management to mitigate neurological injury in critically-ill children. Currently, I am a Research Scientist in the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) Resuscitation Science Center. I specialize in the development and validation of real-time, brain-directed interventional management strategies in preclinical pediatric swine models of cardiopulmonary resuscitation and extracorporeal life support. Working in collaboration with clinician/scientists in the CHOP Resuscitation Science Center and the Department of Biomedical and Health Informatics, I lead data architecture, integration and machine learning model development efforts to examine this rich physiologic dataset (high-resolution physiologic waveforms, blood gas and serum biomarkers, brain MRI, metabolomics, mitochondrial respirometry, histopathology) to identify novel physiologic predictors of survival and neurological injury.
