Scientific Focus

Current Research and Scholarly Interests

My main research interest is in the field of obstetric anesthesia. Specifically, I am currently interested in hematological and hemostatic changes during the peripartum and postpartum periods. Our group is using point of care devices assess in vivo and in vitro changes in coagulation before and after delivery in low and high risk obstetric patients. In addition, we are interested in using electronic databases to assess the factors associated with obstetric hemorrhage, and to assess the effectiveness of clinical management strategies for postpartum hemorrhage.
