Personal profile

Research Interests

My research and clinical interests include ethical issues in rehabilitation, ethical dilemmas posed by neurological impairments, the role of emotion in ethics consultation and medical decision-making, and the impact of emotionally demanding cases on clinical staff. I am a licensed clinical psychologist, bioethicist, Director of the Donnelley Ethics Program at the Shirley Ryan AbilityLab (formerly the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago) and an Associate Professor of Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation and of Medical Education at Northwestern University's Feinberg School of Medicine. My scholarship and practice are informed by over two decades of clinical experience, working in 8 hospital settings (in Buffalo; Boston; Urbana; Chicago; Paris, France; and Kolkata, India). At the Shirley Ryan AbilityLab, I am a clinical and research ethics consultant, chair of the Hospital Ethics Committee and on a steering committee for improving the Patient Experience. I am also on the steering committee for Northwestern University’s Center for Bioethics and Medical Humanities. I have lectured and published on topics ranging from ethical considerations in international traumatic brain injury research to an innovative model of clinical ethics consultation. I am currently the section editor for the Ethics/Legal column for the American Academy of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation’s journal PM&R.
