Lifestyle changes are difficulty for individuals. From obesity to smoking cessation, behavioral change is hard and requires multiple attempts as well as multiple provider interventions. My current research in the area of behavioral change includes developing successful models for behavioral change programs in the community. Programs include using motivational counseling, in either a group or individual setting, to empower individuals to make positive behavioral changes. My second area of research includes the scholarship of teaching and learning. How do students learn? The current areas I am focusing on include the efficacy and applicability of team based-learning as well as models for interprofessional education.

Research projects

Project I: I am interested in cardiology based outcomes research. Two of my current interest areas include sacubitril/valsartan and PCSK9 inhibitor therapy. 
Project II: I am also actually working on educational research. Current projects include assessment of how students learn as well as preceptor related research.
