I’m a Research Scientist at MedStar Health Research Institute, in the National Center for Human Factors in Healthcare in Washington, DC. I’m also an Affiliated Research Scientist at the Regenstrief Institute in Indianapolis, Indiana. I hold a PhD in Health Policy & Management from the Richard M. Fairbanks School of Public Health at Indiana University.

My research sits at the intersection of health services research, health policy, and health informatics. I study the role of health information technology in support of delivery and payment reform efforts; the impact of regulations on innovation, adoption, and use; and the use of system-generated log data to increase understanding of health IT’s impact on care quality. You can find my published work in Health Affairs, Annals of Internal Medicine, the American Journal of Managed Care, the Journal of General Internal Medicine, the Journal of the American Medical Informatics Association, Healthcare, and JAMA Network Open.
