About Me

As a health services, implementation science and outcomes researcher, she focuses on systems of care for hemorrhagic stroke, understanding the roles of resilience and spirituality in critical care recovery and social media in medicine. At Mount Sinai, both programs she established seek to advance knowledge about the continuum of critical care.
