Adjunct Assistant Professor of Health Services, Policy and Practice

Overview

I am an health services researcher, pharmacoepidemiologist, and Adjunct Assistant Professor Health Services, Policy & Practice. My full-time position is Vice President, UnitedHealth Group Research & Development.

I received a PharmD from the University of Rhode Island, a PhD in epidemiology from Brown Medical School, and I completed a post-doctoral fellowship at the Center for Gerontology and Health Care Research at Brown University.

My main research interests involve studying healthcare interventions as they applied in the "real world" - that is, outside of controlled research settings. I have worked extensively with health plan claims data and electronic health records, often including complex, targeted data linkages that improve the validity of the research. My methodological expertise covers topics related to studying medical interventions in the setting of non-randomized treatment groups and incomplete data.
