Associate Professor Shieak Tzeng
University of Otago
Surgery & Anaesthesia
I’m a clinically trained systems physiologist with 15 years of experience designing computer algorithms for extracting diagnostic information from medical device technologies. I have established interests in blood pressure regulation and organ protection particularly in the context of early hypoxic brain injury detection. In these fields my research programme employs electrophysiological, applied statistical and stochastic signal processing approaches spanning from the bench (laboratory studies in human and animal models) to bedside (clinical trials). I am the CEO of Elucimed Ltd, a New Zealand company developing decision support technologies for critical care medicine.
