I conduct research to help clinicians and caregivers effectively and safely use of health technologies when caring for patients who are acutely ill or with multiple chronic illness. Currently, I focus on improving interactions between nurses and medical devices to lower medical device alarms and associated sensory overload among critical care nurses to improve critical care working environment.
