My research interest is in clinical research on the pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of drugs. Medications studied are those commonly used for anesthesia and analgesia. Additionally, other drugs are studied if they have unique characteristics that require intensive or specialized monitoring. Particular effort is used to obtain quality real-time data from intensive pharmacokinetic - pharmacodynamic studies to enable mathematical modeling of drug effect on the human body. Mathematical modeling of data is mainly performed with NONMEM. Where possible, research projects use the electroencephalogram to quantitate pharmacodynamic effect and develop mathematical models to relate pharmacokinetics to pharmacodynamic response. The main interest of my research projects is to develop novel ways to model and describe clinical pharmacology relationships.
