I am an assistant professor in the College of Computing and Informatics (the i School) at Drexel University. My current research uses human factors engineering methods and socio-technical systems theory to study the impact of health information technology on clinical workflow and the usability of technology in underserved populations. In addition, my experience with ethnographic observations used to identify workflow patterns in medication administration and wrong-site surgery prevention and in the utilization of web based information by patients with diabetes guides the implementation of methods for collecting information needs from patients and clinicians.
I am affiliated with the Drexel University Institute for Healthcare Informatics - an initiative based at the iSchool at Drexel (College of Computing and Informatics), the College of Nursing and Health Professions (CNHP), the School of Public Health (SPH) and the College of Medicine (DUCoM). A native New Yorker and graduate of Brooklyn Technical High School, I spent my undergraduate years at Spelman College and Georgia Institute of Technology (electrical engineering) as part of the Dual Degree Engineering program in the Atlanta University Center. I earned my Masters and PhD in industrial engineering at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, where my concentration was in socio-technical systems (i.e., human factors and ergonomics).
