  • Additional

My personal research focus is primarily related to facilitating patient care improvements using 1) enhanced risk modeling approaches; 2) evaluating new diagnostic tests or biomarkers; 3) assessing effectiveness of new technologies or surgical approaches; 4) focusing on a broader range of clinical outcomes for assessment; and 5) providing data-driven analyses to impact decisions at the clinician provider, clinical program management, or health policy levels.
