About Karl

I am a Ph.D.-prepared health services researcher with broad research interests focusing on the intersection of cardiovascular diseases and procedures, outcomes research, and behavioral medicine. My educational background and experience in public health, health services, nursing, and social work enables me to bring a multidisciplinary perspective to this work. In my research, I have applied qualitative and quantitative methodology, as well as mixed methods. Currently I provide scientific leadership to many NIH, CMS, and foundation-funded research projects as research scientist at Yale School of Medicine. During my doctoral studies I also provided career guidance to graduate students as a McDougal Career Services Fellow, and evaluated transitions of care practices as a Process Analysis Consultant at Yale-New Haven Hospital. At the University of New Haven, I primarily teach the Statistics for Healthcare Managers course (HCAD 6671) and Intro to US Healthcare Systems (HLTH 2200).
