A pediatric/neonatal fellow at the Medical University of Vienna, Austria. In addition, currently completing his PhD with a focus on pediatric simulation and resuscitation. Since 2013 a member of the Pediatric Simulation Training Center at the Department of Pediatrics, Medical University of Vienna, Austria where he teaches simulation-based training courses. Since 2014, responsible for the Pediatric Simulation Training Center, which provides simulation courses in pediatric medicine for students, physicians, midwives, and nurses. In 2015, one of the founding members of “Netzwerk Kindersimulation”, a network for pediatric simulation, where he is also the chair at the moment. The network has the goal to develop standards for simulation-based training and education in the German-speaking region.
Research interests include pediatric/neonatal simulation and neonatal resuscitation. Neonatal simulation: currently involved in studies assessing the current status of pediatric simulation within German-speaking countries as well as studies to improve cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) with different teaching methods. Furthermore, how student peer-teaching in pediatric simulation training can improve availability of simulation training. Additionally, planning different studies with the goal to assess biometric / situation awareness data during CPR. The Site-PI of an upcoming large multicenter-trial “Surv1ve – Sustained inflation and chest compression to ventilation ratio during cardiopulmonary resuscitation of asphyxiated newborns – a cluster randomized trial”.
