About Me

As a researcher and teacher in technical medicine, I am working with enthusiasm and inquisitiveness on the challenges at the borderline of medicine and technology. My major focus is optimizing use of refined technologies in individual patients, improving diagnostics using analytical approaches in medical signals, and bringing people together to create clinically relevant solutions.

In my PhD trajectory, I work on novel strategies for remote vital sign monitoring in hospital wards, aiming to improve recognition of clinical deterioration. For this aim, I am exploring optimal design of telemonitoring and methods for decision support. 

Research

PhD research focus:
Early recognition of clinical deterioration in hospital wards: strategies for remote vital sign monitoring and decision support. 

Research groups: 
Biomedical Signals and Systems (BSS, EEMC)

Cardiovascular and Respiratory Physiology (CRPH, TNW)
