My dissertation is focused on the interactions between experts and AI/machine learning systems, specifically how AI explanations impact how healthcare providers incorporate AI recommendations into care decisions.  I have a related project looking at how AI impacts the doctor-patient relationship, and several smaller projects that use pharmaceutical prescription data to evaluate questions related to medical decisions and outcomes. 

I utilize mixed methods in my research, drawing on rigorous qualitative (interviews, shadowing) and quantitative (experiments, econometrics/statistics) techniques. 

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.
