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, and I 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 health care organizations. My teaching and executive education courses focus broadly on topics of leadership and management in modern organizations, as well as on leadership development via outdoor experiential learning expeditions.

In my research, I uncover and test the mechanisms by which individuals learn and develop from their own and others’ experiences at work, with a particular emphasis on learning in health care organizations. Individual learning in modern, knowledge-intensive organizations often occurs in concert with others and via interdependent work experiences, but learning is still often thought of as something that people do by themselves. My research aims to unpack these more dyadic and social mechanisms of learning, examining interpersonal learning interactions, the characteristics individuals bring to these interactions, and the emergent structures in which these interactions are embedded.
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.
