Biography

Steven Andersen is currently an international postdoc fellow at the Dept. of Otolaryngology, Nationwide Children’s Hospital, Ohio State University, Columbus, Ohio, USA.

Former Junior Resident and postdoc at the Dept. of Otorhinolaryngology, Rigshospitalet, Copenhagen, Denmark and Postdoctoral Researcher at the Simulation Centre at Rigshospitalet, Copenhagen Academy for Medical Education and Simulation (CAMES), Copenhagen, Denmark.

My principal research interests are otology and clinical otorhinolaryngology, post-graduate medical education and training, virtual reality in surgical training, and medical technology. My PhD-thesis concerned virtual reality simulation of the mastoidectomy procedure in training novices, and technical skills assessment in temporal bone surgery. I have also researched middle ear disease and post-operative clinical outcome of surgery and gained experience with clinical databases, questionnaires and audiology. In my continued research, I use an integrative approach with the ultimate goal of advancing surgical training and improving patient outcomes; my current research themes include advanced virtual reality simulation of robotics and implantables, fully immersive VR environments, patient-specific training, learning supports and instructional design in self-directed surgical skills training.
