Staff Associate at Columbia University Department of Biomedical Informatics
I am a committed public health professional driven to use my skills and experience in quantitative and qualitative research to strategically plan and evaluate programs aimed at improving health and health care. My experience in implementing complex projects in diverse research and health care settings, coupled with my love of writing and team building, enhances my ability to successfully engage stakeholders, overcome barriers, and achieve project goals. My prior experience guiding wilderness canoe and backpacking trips for youth has instilled in me many translatable skills, such as adaptive problem solving, detail-oriented planning, and positive team leadership. I aspire to continue utilizing and contributing to rigorous scientific evidence in order to improve health outcomes and, ultimately, enhance the lives of the people who experience them.
