Postdoctoral Scholar, Department of Biomedical Informatics

Research Advisor: 


BSN, 2004, University of Kentucky, College of Nursing

MSN, 2015, Duke University, School of Nursing

PhD, 2020, University of Pittsburgh, School of Nursing


Research Objectives:  My program of research focuses on improving identification of critically ill patients upon arrival to the Emergency Department. I aim to use advancing technologies to create predictive algorithms that use both structured and unstructured data from the electronic health record.
