Personal profile

Research Interests

I am a General Surgeon and Health Services Researcher at Northwestern Memorial Hospital. I earned my Ph.D. in Health Services Research with a concentration on Epidemiology and Biostatistics and a Master's in Public Health in Public Policy at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio. My clinic interests are in complex abdominal wall reconstruction and hernia repair, and my research interests focus on surgical quality improvement and public health policy. I joined the Surgical Outcomes and Quality Improvement Center (SOQIC) at Northwestern in 2015. I am currently the Director of the Opioid Reduction Efforts and run a Video-Based Learning Collaborative for the Illinois Surgical Quality Improvement Collaborative (ISQIC), a 56-hospital quality collaborative with hospitals throughout Illinois.
