Scientist | Developer | Designer

I am a Lead Data Scientist at Michigan Medicine on the Precision Health Implementation Workgroup. I support clinical researchers and operational groups in developing, evaluating, and implementing clinical predictive models. My background includes developing business intelligence dashboards used to support decision making in patient care, finance, quality improvement, and practice management. At MIDAS, I worked with the U-M research community developing research data and infrastructure. During my doctoral work, I co-authored and applied an open-source framework to expedite development to prepare time-series clinical data for predictive modeling. The framework reduces time spent manually preparing data and facilitates multidisciplinary research team communication through a common language. I am an officer in the Army Reserve and have deployed to a base defense operational environment. I was responsible for collecting, integrating, and communicating intelligence with NATO counterparts. Before my doctoral work and military deployment, I was a Senior Business Intelligence (BI) Analyst at the U-M School of Dentistry. In this role, I pioneered the BI initiative for the school, meeting with leadership at the associate dean and department chair level and providing full-stack analytical solutions.
