Currently I serve as a Health Scientist with CDC’s Office of Public Health Preparedness and Response where I conduct quantitative and qualitative public health research, assist in the development of a practice-driven research agenda, link research to improved practice and outcomes, and create translation products (see example below).
I have worked with DSTDP’s Program Development and Quality Improvement Branch (PDQIB) to evaluate Training and TA provided as part of the AAPPS FOA and the NNPTC FOA.
I have NIH and NSF-funded research experience on the impact of Atlanta Housing Authority elimination on resident’s health and well-being. During the project I worked with a team to conduct interviews in the field, perform built-environment assessments and clean data.
I wrote and managed the production of an animation that summarizes work our office funded on Health Sector Resilience. This animation, based on the collaborative work of UPMC and CDC, was used to summarize the key findings from qualitative interviews following Hurricane Sandy. The accompanying publication provides tasks for specific health sector organizations to improve resilience in their organization and community.
