    My Research: My dissertation addresses challenges associated with monitoring adults in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) in order to reduce morbidity and mortality of subacute potentially catastrophic illnesses in our hospital. The principal outcome of this research will be a formal framework for predictive monitoring in the ICU that can be adapted to various work structures and environments, as well as, different patient groups.

    Ft. Lauderdale Beach

    I grew up in South Florida, where I attended the University of Miami. At UM I found my passion in Engineering and Medicine. I graduated from UM with a Bachelors in Electrical and Computer Engineering and a Bachelors in Applied Physiology. After a few years in industry, I went back to the University of Miami for my Masters in Electrical and Computer Engineering. Throughout my academics, I always held positions in various research laboratories and consulted for biomedical devices companies. I attribute my success and development as an engineer and researcher to my mentors with whom I have collaborated with throughout my educational, medical, and business career.

    The Wavelet YouTube links are videos, which I made for an undergraduate class at the University of Miami to promote interest in the field of Signal Processing. Just fair warning, the intent of the videos are for them to be entertaining and not mathematically intensive. The other YouTube video is a demonstration of the virtual patient project I have been developing at the University of Virginia's Medical School for training and evaluating nursing students.
