Area of interest

I am a pharmacoepidemiologist with expertise in cancer health services and comparative effectiveness research. My portfolio of work informs a range of clinical decisions faced by cancer patients and their healthcare providers and families, with an emphasis on aging and multimorbidity. The overall objective of this work is to generate robust evidence regarding the uses, benefits, and harms of medical interventions that will lead to improved treatment decisions, clinical outcomes, and quality of life for cancer patients. To address these objectives, my research draws upon large administrative and linked healthcare databases, advanced epidemiologic methods, and multidisciplinary collaboration.
