Personal profile

Research interests

Research Expertise: 
Human Factors | Cognitive Psychology | Clinical Informatics

My research uses information about human behavior, abilities and limitations to design and evaluate tools that improve safety, productivity, and/or health. I have over two decades of applied human factors research experience in industry where I developed expertise in designing, evaluating and improving technologies and work processes, including building prototypes to demonstrate how novel technologies can be leveraged to enable more effective human-system performance. I am currently leading an effort at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia exploring how to ensure that children can ride safely in self-driving vehicles and I recently completed a project funded by ECRI Institute that focused on improving the usability of the discharge documents that are generated by electronic health records.
