As the Associate Dean for Student Affairs and Alumni Relations, my administrative tasks include overseeing all the prospective student recruitment, admission, enrollment, advisement, graduation, and student data management for all active students in the School of Nursing. Also I am responsible for the School of Nursing scholarship recipient selection, and I manage the Undergraduate Research Mentorship Program (URMP).


As Associate Dean for Student Affairs & Alumni Relations, I am interested in addressing the issue of nursing career preparation and job satisfaction. My specialty area is statistics, particularly modeling pooled data, cross-sectional, as well as longitudinal data. My current research focuses on the career trajectory of nursing graduates from the University of Pittsburgh, School of Nursing.


I teach graduate-level students in a Research Computing course that focuses on computing tools and techniques currently utilized in nursing research. In particular, the course covers principles of database management and statistical data analysis using the available software. I also guest lecture on special topics in statistical concepts and applications to graduate and undergraduate students.


I serve on a number of School of Nursing and University of Pittsburgh committees. At the University level, I represent the schools of Health Sciences in the University Council for Academic Computing and am a member of the University Senate Admissions and Student Aid Committee. At the school level, I am a member of the Evaluation and Steering Committee, PhD Council, and Dean`s Council.
