In February 2014, he decided to diversify his professional knowledge and skills with a 1 year research fellowship at the University of California, Irvine, USA with Dr. Maxime Cannesson as his personal mentor.  There, he worked as a leading member of his research team on goal directed therapy strategies and how to implement this concept at the bedside.

His others interests include noninvasive cardiac output monitoring devices, fluid therapy (crystalloid vs colloid debate), and many other novel perioperative technologies.

Dr. Joosten’s main research currently focuses on testing the impact of perioperative hemodynamic optimization using multiple closed-loop systems on postoperative outcome of patients undergoing high risk surgery.
