Director, Data Science & Discovery
The Ohio State University College of Nursing

Associate Professor at the University of Ohio College of Nursing and Affiliate Faculty in the Translational Data and Analytics Institute. As the Director of Data Science and Discovery, I am developing a novel approach for a data repository using a distributed, transparent, immutable, validated system to assure data safety and security. I was a previous NIH Program Officer and now teach health informatics and ethics for doctoral students, advises DNP and PhD students and faculty, and am an active member of The Ohio State University Institutional Review Board. My elected memberships include the American Academy of Nursing and member of the Expert Panel on Informatics, member-at-large for the American Medical Informatics working groups on nursing informatics, ELSI, and clinical informatics. My research focus is a multidisciplinary approach to patient outcomes through data science and visualization with a special focus on opioid use.
