Background

Jacob Herrmann has worked with his advisor, Dr. David Kaczka, since 2011 in the field of respiratory mechanics and ventilation. His current research is developing mechanical ventilation strategies for patients with lung injury, with emphasis on the assessment of patient-specific mechanical heterogeneity and minimization of ventilator-induced lung injury. This work involves extensive computational modeling as well as the development of instrumentation for in vivo models of heterogeneous lung injury.
