I am interested in methods of building capacity to provide timely services to children who are injured or acutely ill in resource poor areas of the world. I am also interested in issues relating to severe infection and sepsis as well as the planning of mass critical care in disasters and pandemics.

I was a Michael Smith Foundation for Health Research Scholar and winner of the Brockhouse Canada Prize for Interdisciplinary Research in 2011.

I lead an interdisciplinary research team (with Professor Guy Dumont) of engineers and clinicians who develop and evaluate novel technical solutions (devices and applications) to improve the health outcomes of women and children around the world. As a team, we combine science and engineering to create cutting edge technology that uses clinical data, automation and smart physical sensors to improve outcomes. Our focus is on extracting important data features from devices and using predictive models, based on large population data sets, to provide accessible decision-making support at all levels of healthcare in every area of the world.
