About

My research interests focus on quantifying mechanical heterogeneity in diseases of the respiratory system, such as asthma, COPD, and acute lung injury. Heterogeneity of lung mechanics has important implications for the work of breathing as well as the distribution of ventilation. My lab relies on several advanced engineering techniques to quantify lung heterogeneity and optimize ventilation distribution, such as forced oscillation measurements of lung impedance, digital signal processing, image analysis, and computational modeling of respiratory mechanics. Other interests include the design and function of mechanical ventilators and anesthesia machines, patient monitoring, as well as linear and nonlinear systems analysis.
