During my MSc, his completed studies of heart-lung interaction with a focus on the hemodynamic effects of mechanical ventilation. During his PhD program, he extended these studies to a model of Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome with a special focus on the effects of volume loading on pulmonary vascular resistance. He has since led a study looking at the hemodynamic effects of a vascular neck restraint in partnership with the Calgary Police Service. His research goals would be to establish new collaborations and continue working in the broader areas of heart-lung interaction, hemodynamics and cardiac function.
