Research interests

Our work focuses on diagnostic, prognostic, and therapeutic pathways, especially in the fields of emergency medicine and critical care. We aim to learn more about how informed decisions are made by both patients and health-care providers. Ultimately, we strive to provide them with the necessary tools and information to improve acute health care.
