Research Interests

My research is focused on improving the way adults with neurologic disease make decisions about their care. My goal is to optimize decision-making and decisional outcomes by developing and implementing tools that allow patients to make informed, value-based decisions. My research also involves reducing gender disparities in Parkinson’s disease care and improving hospital care for people with Parkinson’s disease.
