I am an implementation science researcher, global health practitioner, and graduate-level instructor with experience in a wide range of international settings. My core passions include promoting and conducting implementation research, incorporating intersectional and gender lenses into research and dissemination, institutional capacity strengthening, and knowledge translation for policy makers.

I currently serve as the Assistant Director of the Johns Hopkins Center for Global Health which services the entire University and seeks to promote interdisciplinarity in global health. My work and research aims to improve the capacity of academic institutions to support global health training across the continuum of education.

Current projects include:

1) Mapping, synthesizing, and disseminating lessons learned from polio eradication using an implementation science lens

2) Developing organizational strategies for academic institutions to conduct knowledge translation with policy makers

3) Assessing institutional capacity needs for National Public Health Institutes

4) Pilot testing implementation research competencies in LMICs

5) Developing a women's leadership in global health series, network, and training program
