Research Interest
Dr. Hausmann is a social psychologist who conducts multidisciplinary research and quality improvement projects focused on identifying, understanding, and reducing disparities in health and health care for marginalized veteran populations. While much of her work has focused on issues of discrimination and bias in the VA healthcare setting, she also has extensive experience leading large-scale, multisite, mixed-methods evaluations of the longitudinal impact of efforts to improve quality of care overall or for specific marginalized veteran populations.
