    Collapse Overview
    My research interests are mainly in the domain of Clinical Informatics and include projects such as: development of clinical decision support tools (e.g. a smart TPN calculator), development of a software infrastructure platform for mobile health, development of research database interfaces and data repositories, and analytic tools for intensive care unit physiological data.

    As a Neonatologist, I am also involved in multidisciplinary research in educating and training parents to become more deeply involved in the care of their newborn infant in the Intensive Care Nursery.
