I am a health informatics specialist focusing on identifying and resolving problems associated with the flow of information in biomedical organizations. I utilize analytic approaches such as statistical and machine learning models and knowledge representation techniques, and systems methodologies such as interactive planning for the evaluation and understanding of information.
I have worked on informatics projects to uncover implicit knowledge in biomedical practices and to identify the organizational structure of online health communities. My work applying interactive planning has addressed systemic problems of organizational change; it has also been used to provide the framework for collaborative work to diffuse a novel medical intervention across biomedical organizations.
I earned my PhD in Informatics with emphasis on Health Informatics from the University of Missouri at Columbia; completed an MS in Organizational Dynamics from the University of Pennsylvania; and received a BA in Political Science and BA in Communication Studies from Stockton University.
