Research Interests

My current primary research interests are in patient centered outcomes research, specifically in fostering and measuring engagement in research, and in the use of novel intervention techniques to increase engagement of patients and research participants.    My methodologic interests are design and analysis of longitudinal trials, and the psychometrics of patient centeredness


I am a research methodologist with my PhD training in quantitative psychology completed at the University of New Mexico in 2006, and my post-doc training completed at the at the University of New Mexico School of Medicine, Department of Family and Community Medicine, in 2011.  Since 2011 I have been on the faculty at the Sidney Kimmel Medical College at Thomas Jefferson University in the Department of Family and Community Medicine. In that role I am the director of the Greenfield Research Center, where I consult with faculty, fellows, staff and students across the institution on study design and analysis, and mentor research learners across the spectrum of training. I have been teaching statistics and research methods for close to 15 years.
