Associate Professor

I provide clinical services consulting for patients and providers on medication-related issues that arise at home and during transitions in care for the Complex Care Support Team and Discharge Call-Back Program at UCSF Medical Center. My research focuses on the use of patient-centered health information technology to improve medication safety and health outcomes through evidence-based health care. I teach geriatric pharmacotherapy and I am developing practical and applied teaching methods for simulating real world clinical practice to advance students’ problem solving skills and interprofessional teamwork for pharmacy, medical, nursing, dental, and physical therapy students in the classroom and clinic.
