Scientific summary

Experimental work

After my PhD that looked at the pathophysiology of lung injury induced by mechanical ventilation, I orientated my research towards the pathophysiology of bacterial pneumonia, focusing on the epidemiology and determinants of virulence factors of pathogens such as E. coli with the ultimate goal of providing new prevention and therapeutic strategies to the community.  

Clinical research

My clinical work focuses on acute respiratory failure and the use of new devices such as high flow oxygen.
