Research Interests

My research interests focus on how we use technology to teach medical students, residents and fellows in the evolving health care system. I am also particularly interested in the impact of longitudinal advising on medical student and resident educational development and career choice.

Clinical Interests

Clinically, my work is focused in the intensive care units, both medical and surgical. I spend much of my time working on improving systems of health care delivery in the critical care setting including efforts to minimize nosocomial infections, prevent delirium and deliver patient& family-centered care.
