Dr Peter Smielewski is a senior research associate at the Brain Physics Lab, Department of Clinical Neurosciences, University of Cambrige, UK. He specializes in intensive care unit monitoring, high resolution data collection, integration and analysis. He graduated from Warsaw University of Technology, with a Master degree in Electrical Engineering, and subsequently received his PhD at the Division of Neurosurgery, University of Cambridge, UK, where he developed computer-aided methods of non-invasive assessment of cerebral blood flow regulation. He is the main author of a physiological monitoring data collection and real-time analysis software ICM+ licensed by Cambridge University to many clinical research centres worldwide (currently over 160), and which incorporates all the methods of assessment of various aspects of cranio-spinal dynamics that he and his colleagues have been developing over the last 25 years. His current focus includes methodologies for continuous assessment of cerebral autoregulation and cerebrovascular properties and their role in individualised management of traumatic brain injury patients. He has been leading or co-leading numerous workshops on advanced, applied neuromonitoring for many years, with particular focus on medical devices connectivity and waveform feature extraction from intracranial pressure, near-infrared spectroscopy and transcranial Doppler flow velocity measurements.
