Dr. Schlesinger’s research focuses on multisensory integration and clinician response to alarms and patient comorbidities of noise in the ICU. His research aims include development of safe and effective patient monitoring and alarm systems.

***Students are expected to be involved in study design, IRB submission, data acquisition, data analysis, writing, revising, publishing, and presenting. As this naturally will take more than one year, students who are interested in joining the lab should reach out as early in the college career as possible. Scientific writing takes time, and therefore, second-semester juniors and seniors, for instance, would not be able to meet the time commitment.
