I am an Assistant Professor at Johns Hopkins University on the faculty of the Carey Business School, the School of Medicine, and the Armstrong Institute for Patient Safety and Quality. I also serve as Academic Director of Executive Education at the Carey Business School.
My research and writing explore the ways people learn and lead at work, with a particular emphasis on how people learn vicariously and share knowledge in health care organizations, and has been published in a variety of leading journals in the fields of management and medicine. At the Carey Business School, I teach several courses on leading and managing in modern organizations, both for degree students and practicing managers.

In my research, I explore how individuals learn and develop from their own and others’ experiences at work, with a particular emphasis on learning in health care organizations and other knowledge-intensive work environments. Much of my work focuses on dyadic and social mechanisms of learning in these organizations, unpacking how individuals learn through interpersonal interactions and shared understanding of other’s experiences at work.
In addition to my research on learning in organizations, I also explore and write about topics related to leadership, learning, and management in health care, and share this work in academic journals, teaching cases, and practice-focused publications.
My teaching focuses broadly on topics of leadership and management in modern organizations, combining research-driven lessons with experiential challenges and real-world case studies to create an engaging session that prepares people to be more effective leaders in their workplace.
In addition to my formal teaching, I also consult and conduct custom executive development training with individuals and organizations around the world. I have worked with groups from a variety of backgrounds and countries, ranging from local and national government agencies to academic medical centers and emergency services teams.
