I am an associate professor in the College of Computing and Informatics 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, both in the US and internationally.

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). I am a native New Yorker and proud graduate of the New York City Public School system – Brooklyn Technical High School. After that it was all gravy – Alumna of Spelman College and Georgia Institute of Technology (electrical engineering) as part of the Dual Degree Engineering program in the Atlanta University Center. Career switch to industrial engineering at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, where my passion developed in socio-technical systems and human factors and ergonomics.
