I am a qualitative research analyst at the Center for Healthcare Outcomes and Policy (CHOP). I have a BS in Environmental Policy (University of Michigan, School for Environment and Sustainability) and a MA in Sociology, specializing in environmental justice, feminist sociology, and science and technology studies (Michigan State University). My master's research addressed political agroecology on Mt. Kilimanjaro, Tanzania, applying qualitative and participatory methodologies. In addition, I have clinical pastoral training in interfaith hospital chaplaincy.
Within health services, I have collaborated in research on medical ethics, opioid prescribing, family member distress, physician-scientist caregiver burdens, patient and provider decision-making, and deimplementation. My content area interests include clinical ethics, environmental justice, cultural studies of science and technology (STS), anti-racism scholarship, penal abolition, and transformative justice. My perspective is informed by practical experience as a community and labor organizer. I am interested in applying creative, rigorous, and flexible approaches to qualitative research in health services, for example, interpretive description, focused ethnography, rapid turn-around, case studies, and document analysis.
