This is the webpage  of Avinash Konkani. He is a doctoral student in Systems Engineering in the department of Industrial and Systems Engineering at Oakland University (OU). He started his PhD study from Fall 2010 semester. He has  educational and work experience in Biomedical Engineering and Human Factors Engineering. Before joining OU, he has worked as an Assistant Professor of Biomedical Engineering at Trident Academy of Technology, a private engineering college in Bhubaneswar, Orissa, India.

 For his doctoral work, he is applying a systems engineering approach to help resolve the problem of increasing noise and false alarms from the medical devices in hospital Intensive Care Units (ICUs) and Operation Rooms (OR). This is an important area: increasing noise levels and alarm fatigue form significant obstacles for clinicians’ work performance and adversely affects the patient safety.
