Personal profile

Area of Expertise

My primary research interests are in process redesign for improving patient safety, hospital architecture and design, health information privacy, and managerial benchmarking using Data Envelopment Analysis. I have 20 first-authored publications in such journals as Management Science, Health Care Management Science, Health Affairs, Medical Care Research and Review, Neurology, Anesthesia and Analgesia, and Naval Research Logistics. My research on protecting the privacy of healthcare data is being funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF). I received a grant to better understand the role of private hospital rooms in reducing the risk of a hospital-acquired infection, such as MRSA and C. Diff.
