Professor Luiz Wrobel: Inaugural Lecture

Eastern Gateway at Sunset

In this lecture, Professor Wrobel will explain how computer simulations can be used to better understand and improve neonatal care equipment such as incubators, radiant warmers and oxygen hoods. He will also discuss his development of a computer model that helps simulate the treatment of encephalopathy hypoxic-ischemia in new-born children, in order to develop more effective treatment to prevent further health issues which might cause permanent brain cell damage.
