Assistant Professor of Epidemiology

Overview

Nina received her doctorate in Epidemiology from Brown in 2015 and completed a 2-year post-doctoral fellowship at Harvard Medical School's Department of Health Care Policy. Though my training is in epidemiology I frequently collaborate with researchers across departments, including health services research and economics. As a result, I have developed an interdisciplinary research agenda that aims to place traditional clinical epidemiological research within the context of current health policy. My research focuses on the association between patterns of health care utilization and clinical outcomes, with particular interests in longitudinal patterns of pharmacotherapy in children and end-of-life care for the elderly.  In addition, I am currently building an initiative to study the association between medication use and motor vehicle crashes in older drivers.
