Anesthesiology, Pharmacology & Therapeutics

Faculty of Medicine, UBC

I am the Director of the Center for International Child Health and a professor, researcher and clinician in the Department of Anesthesiology, Pharmacology & Therapeutics at the University of British Columbia (UBC). 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 datasets, to provide accessible decision-making support at all levels of healthcare in every area of the world.
