A current funded project is a prospective cohort study examining the association between excess weight and proximate and durable outcomes for mechanically ventilated adults. I am also interested in the influence of excess weight on provider bias and disparities in care.
A second project examines the association between the development of delirium among patients with sepsis and long-term mortality and morbidity.
