Sayra  Cristancho

Sayra Cristancho

Assistant Professor/Scientist - CERI

Research Interests / Specializations: Medical Biophysics
Biography: My research program overall looks at the processes of team adaptation in unexpected, acute and high-stakes situations. Up to now, my research has taken place in clinical contexts including trauma teams, surgical teams, intensive care teams, etc. As my research is informed by systems theories, including swarm intelligence, that have been applied in other contexts and very nascent in healthcare, I am currently interested in learning from teams who are required to perform in complex environments, such as SWAT teams earth and space exploration teams, and high-stakes business teams.
