How do we manage heart attacks and ventricular arrhythmias? When is an emergency c-section really necessary during labor? How can computers improve healthcare quality, outcomes, costs, and access? These are some of the questions that I work on. My research focuses on addressing the needs of modern medicine and developing world healthcare. Within this broad area, some specific problems that I am interested in include the discovery of computational biomarkers for cardiovascular disorders; assessing surgical quality and outcomes; managing patients with epilepsy; and developing sustainable technologies for global health.
