About Me

I am an Assistant Researcher in Industrial and Systems Engineering and the School of Pharmacy.

I am currently working on a research project to identify hazards in the primary care of elderly patients. Data collection has included observations at fifteen clinics all over Wisconsin, focus groups, and electronic hazard reporting.

I am also now working on the follow up study in which we will test an intervention to increase the situational awareness of physicians during visits with elderly patients.

My work in pharmacy focuses on medication handoffs in community pharmacy.

I also enjoy horseback riding with the Hoofer Riding Club, playing hockey, and going to UW hockey games.
