    Collapse Overview 
    Collapse overview
    I am currently faculty in both Emergency Medicine and Space Medicine at Baylor College of Medicine. My background includes MS and PhD degrees in Aerospace Engineering with research focusing on spacecraft propulsion, extreme ultraviolet lithography and plasma physics. My research interests bridge the divide between engineering and medicine and include Aerospace Medicine, Emergency Medical Response Systems, Ultrasound and Plasma Medicine.

    PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
