Research Practice Areas:
Current Research:
Dr. Bariciak is involved in a clinical trial investigating the link between neonatal renal biomarkers and the development of hypertension. She is also researching the use of thermographic imaging to detect early necrotizing enterocolitis. Other projects include the development of a computer-based decision support tool to predict obstetrical outcomes (pre-term birth, operative delivery, perinatal mortality); a computer-based system for real-time alerts based on predictions of neonatal outcomes (Necrotizing enterocolitis, Bronchopulmonary dysplasia, mortality, Intraventricular hemorrhage, prolonged ventilation and prolonged NICU admission); and a computer-based decision support tool to help parents and physicians with difficult management decisions in the NICU.
Research Team:
Dr. Bariciak is a Clinical Investigator at the CHEO Research Institute, an Assistant Professor in the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Ottawa, and an Adjunct Professor in the Department of Systems and Computer Engineering at Carleton University. She is an academic neonatologist practicing in the NICUs at the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario and the Ottawa Hospital General Campus. Her research focuses on the study of neonatal renal physiology and the development and clinical application of computer-based decision support tools using artificial intelligence at the bedside.
