About Me

I can help you at all stages of the research cycle from idea to publication and beyond, including:

  • assistance in getting clinical warehouse data
  • constructing search protocols for research teams conducting systematic and scoping reviews
  • identifying publishing venues to ensure high impact and visibility
  • tracking the impact of your publications

Note to busy clinicians: “If you’ve spent more than 10 minutes trying to find something in the literature, give me a call.”
