I am an academic emergency physician in Florida with a focus in pre-hospital medicine. My primary areas of research and teaching are drowning resuscitation, drowning physiology, and water safety. I have an extensive background in open water lifesaving and teach nationally and internationally on drowning prevention, drowning resuscitation, and lifeguarding; additionally I have been involved in numerous national and international guideline publications. I have published numerous papers and book chapters on these topics and collaborate with an international network of drowning researchers.
