I earned my PhD in Management from Warwick Business School (WBS) in September 2018. Currently I am a Lecturer (Assistant Professor) in Healthcare Management and Leadership at The University of Sheffield. In March 2020 I completed my Post-Doctoral Fellowship in Operations Management at WBS evaluating the UK National Health Service (NHS) partnership with Virginia Mason Institute (USA).

I have over 10 years of health management experience in public and private healthcare in Canada, USA, and UK.

Research interests

Principal Investigator, Health System Resilience for Extreme Weather Emergencies

My current research has several interconnected streams including healthcare quality improvement (QI) and safety, QI evaluation methods, workforce flexibility, and emergency management. Through my research training and professional experience, I have developed expertise in mixed-method approaches to analyse health service operations and quality improvement interventions. Methods I draw upon in evaluating health services include interviews, observations, surveys and archival data reviews.
