As a human factors engineer, I employ mixed methods approaches to understand users' current practices and deliver their desired experiences through an iterative design process. My goals for redesigning include quality, safety, and performance improvement as well as user experience.

 

 My practices as a researcher and designer employ methods from organizational and cognitive ergonomics in order to deliver a well-rounded solution informed by evidence based literature.  Take a look in my portfolio to see my recent work. 

"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” – Mark Twain

About Me

 

I am a human factors engineer at the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia serving  the enterprise in their quality, safety, and performance improvement projects. Concurrently, I am finishing my PhD in Industrial and Systems Engineering at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.  My research primarily focuses on Human Factors in Healthcare. Currently I am examining role classifications of informal caregivers in geriatric care. I hope to incorporate cognitive engineering principles and socio-technical systems approaches to illicit design implications for user-friendly, technology-based support systems.
Before coming to Wisconsin, I received my masters in Human Factors Engineering at Virginia Tech and studied Cognitive Psychology during my undergraduate tenure at the University of Illinois. My core strengths include human subjects research, user experience design, organizational change management, and systems engineering. I have worked for Northrop Grumman and Unilever between my academic tenures. I have also supported the Mayo Clinic and the Children's Hospital of Wisconsin as a Human Factors Engineer working on several projects to improve patient and provider safety, as well as enterprise efficiencies. In my free time I love traveling, trying out new foods and cultures, and catching up with friends.
