He is a scientist on the Implementation Core of the VA’s QUERI-funded “EXpanding expertise Through E-health Network Development” (EXTEND) project, which seeks to enhance veteran access to care by optimizing telehealth services. His other research seeks to understand how context and culture affect communication in clinical handoffs and transitions of care.
