Personal Information

Activity

Currently Teaching (2013-2014)

Current Research Interests

Expertise

  • Clinical trials
  • Musculoskeletal pain
  • Health informatics

I am committed to improving the scientific understanding of musculoskeletal pain and conservative approaches to management of these conditions. My interests reach beyond research science and into clinical practice where there is a well recognized need to translate population based knowledge into decisions for individual patients.

I’m fortunate to be able to apply the principles of health informatics in what I do and enjoy collaborating with investigators from different disciplines at the University of Minnesota, Minneapolis Medical Research Foundation, Mayo Clinic and the Minneapolis VA Medical Center.
