Dr. Sherman is an internationally recognized speaker and author in the emerging field of sustainability in anesthesia. Her research interest is in life cycle assessment (LCA) of anesthetic practice, quantifying energy, greenhouse gas emissions, human health impacts, and economic densities of anesthetic drugs, OR devices, and perioperative behaviors to help guide clinical decision making toward more ecologically sustainable practices. Dr. Sherman collaborates with environmental engineers, epidemiologists and health economists towards this goal, and also serves on the Environmental Task Force of the American Society of Anesthesiologists. Dr. Sherman is the recipient of the Anesthesia Patient Safety Foundation award for her work, "Environmental and public health impacts of anesthesia alternatives."
