PhD Candidate
Acute heart failure and MCS

Brian is studying how mechanical circulatory support (MCS) couples with cardiovascular physiology in the setting of acute heart failure or cardiogenic shock. His previous work involved how to extract organ function parameters from well-integrated support devices, designed carbon capture systems for gasification and fuel cell power plants, and performed microfluidic chip design and imaging. His current research interests include understanding acute disease pathophysiology towards developing more accessible support devices for treating/diagnosing organ failure. In his free time, Brian enjoys dragon boat racing, indoor rock climbing, and backcountry winter treks.
