Position title: Associate Professor, Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering

Nicole Werner, PhD is a Human Factors Engineer who is interested in modeling the sociotechnical systems in which medically complex patients and their network of informal caregivers perform the “work” of healthcare. Her research seeks to (re)design those systems toward a human-centered, smart and connected patient journey. Her current work focuses on designing and implementing health information technologies as interventions to support medically complex patients and their network of informal caregivers in performing healthcare “work” in the home and as they transition across healthcare settings, with the overall goal of improving patient safety, care quality and well-being.
