Areas of Expertise

I joined Healogix in 2023 and have over 10 years of experience conducting research across sectors. I am a trained behavioral scientist, and leverage frameworks from social and cognitive psychology to help understand how people think and behave across various contexts (e.g., healthcare, pharmacy, digital). I have extensive experience utilizing both qualitative (e.g., IDIs, focus groups) and quantitative (e.g., surveys, driver analyses) methodologies. Having published over 10 articles in peer-reviewed outlets and delivered over 100 scientific presentations, I am particularly interested in rigorous statistical methodologies and science communication.

What I Love About Our Industry

I chose to pursue a career in research because I wanted to make a difference in the world. Healthcare is a domain where lives quite literally hang in the balance, so I am thrilled to apply my research and behavioral science skillset to help advance people’s health and wellness.
