I have served as a faculty member at Seton Hall University since 2014, teaching research methodology, health informatics and financial management courses to doctoral and master’s degree students in the Department of Interprofessional Health Sciences and Health Administration. In addition, I am an associate Professor for Seton Hall-Hackensack Meridian School of Medicine. I also provide doctoral students with mentoring for their dissertations.

As a health services and policy researcher, my research focuses on health policy, pharmaceutical outcome research, nurse staffing, clinical outcomes, quality of care, long term care, disease management, emergency medical services, clinical trial, health informatics and big data analytics. I have been PI and Co-PI on a number of federal (NIH), state and local government, foundation and industrial research grants.
