Research Interest

Research interests: Mechanical ventilation, patient-ventilator interaction, Proportional Assist Ventilation (PAV), Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS)
My research focuses on patient-ventilator asynchrony, and its impact on sleep, delirium and weaning from mechanical ventilation in the ICU. I am also interested in looking at how mode of ventilation impacts the development of ventilator-associated lung injury and ventilator-associated diaphragm dysfunction
