Research Interests

I am a qualitative and mixed methods researcher in the Department of Family Medicine. My primary research area is implementation science to improve application of evidence-based strategies to improve health outcomes in opioid treatment and chronic diseases such as diabetes and cardiovascular disease. I am also interested in primary care roles and staff wellbeing, having conducted my doctoral dissertation on the relationship between medical assistants’ job roles and employee outcomes of job satisfaction and job burnout.
