I am the Associate Director for Research in the VUMC Center for Knowledge Management. I'm a former National Library of Medicine Associate and former DBMI National Library of Medicine Biomedical Informatics Research Training Fellow. In the course of my 17-year tenure at Vanderbilt, I have developed expertise in the areas of technology and consumer health/patient informatics, study design, and quantitative and qualitative evaluation methodologies. I have served as co‐PI with Dr. Nunzia Bettinsoli Giuse on the Center for Knowledge Management's research projects in health literacy and learning styles for patient communication and education, and most recently, collaborated on our research into the social and behavioral determinants of health. In all, my work has resulted in 14 peer-reviewed articles and 40 conference papers and abstracts.
