My research focuses on 1) mechanisms resulting in and treatment of acute lung injury; 2) weakness in patients with critical illnesses; 3) identification of genetic determinants of infectious and vascular occlusive complications in patients who undergo surgical procedures, and the use of genetic information to develop tools to identify patients at risk of infectious or thrombotic complications and that allow perioperative physicians to tailor therapy to potentially treat or prevent these complications; 4) prevention of delirium after surgery and prevention of delirium in Intensive care unit patients; 5) medical informatics and “big data” in anesthesiology and critical-care; and 6) machine learning and use of vital signs to predict changes in patient status or for life-saving interventions.
