Katie Zellner, MPH

PhD Student
Health Informatics Researcher

 

 ABOUT

I am a PhD student in Information Science at the College of Computing and Informatics at Drexel University, Philadelphia – working with Dr. Aleksandra Sarcevic.

 

Our research aims at designing and developing technologies to reduce errors and improve efficiency in high-risk, error-prone healthcare settings, such as emergency medical and trauma resuscitations.

 

My areas of research interests surround developing technologies to improve the quality and access to healthcare.

I graduated from the University of Chicago with a BA in Biological Sciences in 2017. Upon graduation, I worked at Cerner Corporation where I worked as a consultant for State and Local Government MMIS programs.  

I completed my Master of Public Health with customized studies in Biostatistics from the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health in 2020. 

I love to watch movies, knit sweaters, go on runs and spend time with my cats Rosalind and Barb.
