Areas of Expertise



As a teacher, I see my role as a facilitator of learning. I believe everyone has an innate inquiry and desire to learn given the right environment, direction, support and resources. As a faculty, I see my role as a partnership with the learner to co-produce the optimal learning experience.


As a translational researcher, I am keenly interested in how quality and safety competencies impact patient outcomes.
