Nutrition is the most inexpensive intervention that can possibly impact clinical outcomes. Imagine if we could prevent a patient from dying just by ensuring provision of the right nutritional support while they are critically unwell? Coming from a developing nation, India, my aim is to look at cost effective interventions like nutritional support, that can impact clinical outcomes. Being a trained anaesthetist my skills involve conduct of complex studies requiring emergency management of situations and studies requiring multidisciplinary involvement for successful conduct. I am also a current ICU trainee with the college of intensive care medicine and have advanced airway skills, communication skills including having successful organ donation conversations and skills required for effective management of critically ill patients. I have over 10 yrs experience in intensive care along with a training in utilisation of nanotechnology in medicine, ALS, conducting telemedicine consults. I have been selected for peer mentoring program by the university of adelaide and I am happy to mentor candidates looking for support due to their diverse regional backgrounds.
I moved to Australia in 2015 to further my career in intensive care. I taught with the ANU medical school as associate clinical lecturer before moving to Adelaide in 2017. I am currently pursuing full time PhD in acute care medicine specifically looking at intensive care nutrition while my studies involves understanding nutrition utilisation in health, factors affecting nutrient absorption and utilisation in intensive care patients.
My research involves exploring evidence based approaches to bring about changes in nutrient delivery that can have a positive impact on clinical outcomes in the critically ill.
