My research is focused on the interactions between people and AI, especially how experts interpret information from AI or machine learning systems. One area that intrigues me is how healthcare providers and patients incorporate AI recommendations into care decisions.  I am a licensed Emergency Medical Technician (EMT), which helps ground my research in healthcare decision-making.

My corporate experience includes several years in the healthcare industry as a Brand Manager and Marketing Director, focusing on the intersection of clinical and commercial aspects of special care and rare disease management. Prior to working in industry, I was an officer in the United States Marine Corps. I deployed to Afghanistan twice, first as a platoon commander and then as an operations planning officer.
