Biography

Background

Peter has a strong interest in research. He has undertaken research examining

  • cardiac failure
  • intensive care medicine
  • infection
  • e-learning and education 
  • burn injury.

His specific research focuses are cardiac failure, intensive care medicine and education.

In 2007 Peter completed his PhD by publication. His PhD addressed the treatment and withdrawal of intraaortic balloon counterpulsation. The interest for this thesis was driven by a clinical background spent predominantly in the ICU.

Prior to commencing as a lecturer at QUT, Peter taught undergraduate and postgraduate nursing in New Zealand for three and half years.
