I am an epidemiologist/outcomes researcher by training and have been working in transplant health services research at UAB under the mentorship of Dr. Jayme Locke since 2013. I completed my Doctor of Public Health in April 2019 and joined the UAB Department of Surgery as an Assistant Professor in July 2019. My research focuses on outcomes of transplant caregivers, living kidney donors, and increasing access to living donation. My primary interests include mixed methods and intervention development, specifically regarding education efforts to increase organ donation awareness and interventions to reduce caregiver burden.
