Health Associate Fellow
Veterans Affairs Palo Alto Healthcare System
East Palo Alto, California
I am a post doctoral Polytrauma/TBI Rehabilitation Health Associate Fellow with the Department of Veterans Affairs in Palo Alto, CA. I graduated from the University of Pittsburgh with an MPH in Epidemiology and a PhD in Rehabilitation Sciences concentrating in Rehabilitation Technology (i.e Wheelchairs, Assisted Transfer devices, Prosthetics & Orthotics). My research training and related skill set extends into different fields with differing goals. Specifically, my expertise is in research design and methodology, participatory action research & design (R&D) for innovative clinical therapeutics and community programs, public health communication & health literacy, leadership & success training, statistical coding, and writing/presentation of clinical research outcomes. I am currently overseeing projects that aim to assist marginalized communities adapting to essential healthcare services in light of the COVID-19 Pandemic. This includes projects promoting quality of life, telehealth and e-health, virtual reality/augmented reality, and related digital therapeutics.
