Acute heart failure and MCS

Brian studies physiologic alterations in the setting of mechanical circulatory support (MCS) device use during acute heart failure or cardiogenic shock. During his PhD, he studied and developed physiologic control algorithms for an improved understanding of cardiovascular physiology during the use of the Impella as a paradigmatic MCS device. Previously, he trained as a mechanical engineer and designed carbon capture systems for gasification and fuel cell power plants and performed microfluidic chip design and imaging. His current interests include understanding acute disease pathophysiology towards developing more accessible medical devices for treating/diagnosing organ failure. In his free time, Brian enjoys dragon boat racing, winter hiking, and spending time with his dog.
