Profile:

As a nurse scientist, my program of research focuses on patients with heart failure. In particular, I study symptom perception, recognition and response in this population. Over the past decade, I have conducted studies on treatment delay, symptom perception, and tested a heart failure symptom training intervention targeting timely response to escalating heart failure symptoms. I am interested in the biological underpinnings of heart failure symptom perception including biomarkers and change in autonomic function. Currently, I have a pending NIH R01 proposal to examine relationships between objective indices of congestion and patient perception of symptoms.  

I served as Associate Dean for Research in the School of Nursing from July 2010 until September 2013. In this role, my goal was to position the Stony Brook School of Nursing as a strong foundation for nursing research and scholarship. I used a multifaceted approach that provided multiple opportunities for collaboration on research, grants, and publications. A primary goal was to promote and facilitate faculty and student research and grant writing at all levels. As the School of Nursing is part of an academic medical center, this included integration of Stony Brook University Medical Center’s research agenda. Therefore, I actively collaborated with the medical center’s Associate Director of Nursing Quality and Research. I also was a member of the GCRC General Advisory Committee and supported the CTSA application. Developing an Office of Nursing Research with opportunities and resources for research supports the strategic plans of both the school and Stony Brook University. My scientific foundations, built on my education and research experience, contributed to building the culture of research both within and outside of the School of Nursing.

My philosophy of teaching is based on achieving student understanding by promoting students’ active involvement in the learning process. Using both significant and transformative learning theories, I create assignments starting with the outcome desired followed by development of the sequential steps leading to the outcome. Scholarly discourse is an essential part of this process. Students are encouraged to question prior assumptions and actively search for answers to their questions. Students are asked to turn information ‘over in their hands’ to examine various aspects of issues and concepts and to seek and accept critique. I believe being accessible, responsive and providing timely feedback is important as students move through the curriculum. My goal is to support development of skills necessary for life-long learning, high-level evidence-based nursing practice and research.
