What are your research interests?
Resuscitation Science, specifically information availability and analysis to support decision-making.
What is the most innovative sim-related activity you do in your work?
We are constantly exploring ways and creating novel methods to make simulation-based resuscitation education and research contextually realistic. We have developed simulators to interface with clinical devices, modified existing simulators to be more realistic using 3D printing, and even built an entire Simulation Hospital which has the same infrastructure as our actual hospital. All of these allow us to shorten the time between education and discovery in the lab to quality improvement in the clinical environment.
Why did you join IPSS?
It was recommended to me by trusted colleagues as a professional society that I could be actively involved despite (at the time) being relatively junior. I was able to find mentorship and friendship through attending my first meeting which has grown to this day.
What do you gain from your IPSS membership?
I am the Resuscitation Scientist for Johns Hopkins Hospital with responsibilities that overlap both adult and pediatric populations. Even so, my academic interests are heavily pediatric-focused and IPSS has a vibrant community of similarly-focused, yet diverse kid-centered researchers and clinicians. The society affords me so many opportunities to connect with others in meaningful and productive collaborations.
What are you looking forward to at IPSSW?
The interactive sessions at Johns Hopkins All Children’s!
