Personal profile

Research Interests

I am a pediatric emergency physician and health services researcher with interests in improving care delivery at the intersection of the emergency department, office, and hospital and optimizing healthcare decisions made by parents and providers. I co-lead the research efforts in the Telehealth Program at Lurie Children’s and am involved in the Lurie Children’s Health Partners Clinically Integrated Network’s efforts to reduce emergency department visits. I completed a combined pediatric emergency medicine and pediatric health services research fellowship at the University of Michigan in 2009. In 2018, I joined the faculty at Lurie Children's and the Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine in 2018.

My research focuses on healthcare decisions within the context of acute care. I have expertise in analysis of administrative datasets, survey methodology, and the development and testing of pediatric measures for quality improvement. I also design and evaluate interventions for primary prevention of unintentional injury. I am the PI of an R01 project funded by the NICHD to test the efficacy of an ED-based mobile health intervention to promote size-appropriate child passenger safety behaviors with the goal of reducing preventable injuries and deaths from car crashes. I serve as the co-chair of the Injury Control Special Interest Group of the Academic Pediatric Association. I am a decision editor for Academic Emergency Medicine.

I support families and treat children with acute illness and injury in the Lurie Children’s Kenneth & Anne Griffin Emergency Care Center.
