Research Career Interest: Educational Technology within the healthcare arena, which includes e-learning / multimedia, simulation, virtual reality, and other technologically augmented methods of teaching. Some clinical research including Emergency Department efficiency, pre-hospital care, and trauma care.

I currently sit on the executive board / steering committee of the INSPIRE Network (http://www.inspireSim.com/), an international pediatric simulation research network, as well as the PEMCRC (http://www.pemnetwork.org/pemcrc), the Pediatric Emergency Medicine Clinical Research Committee of the American Academy of Pediatrics.
