About Me

I am a professor and Associate Director for Clinical Informatics at the Center for Biomedical Informatics and Vice Chair for Learning Health Systems in the Department of Pediatrics at Wake Forest University. I was the founding director of Children’s Health Services Research at Indiana University where I retain adjunct faculty status. I received my medical degree and master’s in medical informatics from Stanford University and completed my residency in pediatrics and a Robert Wood Johnson Clinical Scholars fellowship at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where I served on the faculties of pediatrics, biomedical engineering, and public health. 

My work is at the interface of decision sciences and medical informatics. I have published scores of articles on decision analysis, cost-effectiveness analysis, utility theory, and computer-based clinical  decision support over the last 30  years. I am the chair of the Partnership for Policy Implementation at the American Academy of Pediatrics and am an elected fellow of the American College of Medical Informatics. I received the AAP Oberst award for significant contributions to the field of clinical information technology and the John M. Eisenberg Award for Practical Application of Medical Decision Making Research from the Society for Medical Decision Making.
