Her research is focused on resuscitation science and improving outcomes from cardiac arrest. Specifically she studies 1) diffusion of innovation and new media in resuscitation and 2) translation of research to policy.
She is identifying communities at risk for cardiac arrest and evaluating unique strategies for optimizing cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) training and automated external defibrillator AED availability. In this context, she is the Director of the MyHeartMap Challenge- a social media and crowdsourcing project aimed at improving AED access and awareness. She also runs a Twitter lab which analyzes thousands of tweets related to resuscitation, critical care, and public health/policy.
