I am a PhD Student in the Department of Computer Science at the University of Colorado Boulder. My main area of research is the design and use of Electronic Health Records (EHRs) in primary care settings. However, as an NSF GK12 Fellow in Project eCSite, I also study how to integrate technology and computational thinking into Health Curriculum to improve learning in Health classrooms.
My greatest passion is the field of healthcare. The majority of activities that I engage in relate to the medical field in someway. Not only is it a field focused on helping people and caring for those in need, but it is a field that is engaged in an endless pursuit of innovation that will lead to better outcomes and higher qualities of life.
My primary research interests straddles Human-Centered Computing and Clinical Informatics. I am interested in the design and use of EHRs in primary care settings and how we can best leverage technology to support chronic care treatment in small clinic settings.
In my spare time I am a connoisseur of electronic music. I also love to run and swim. During the past summer I began running barefoot, which was a completely liberating experience. I have started using a pair of Vibram’s Five Fingers in order to continue minimalist running during the winter season and inclement weather. When I have the time, I love to experiment in the kitchen.
