One of my main projects is working with UPMC, a large integrated delivery and financing system in Western Pennsylvania, on conducting community health needs assessments for its 13 licensed non-profit hospitals. My research interests are in quantitative approaches to understanding the context in which health disparities occur and employing these methods to assist decision makers in developing effective interventions to improve health outcomes. Prior research experience includes working at the VA Pittsburgh Health System’s Center for Health Equity Research and Promotion, Institute of Medicine, and the U.S. Government Accountability Office. I received a Kellogg Health Scholars postdoctoral fellowship, have a DrPH in BCHS and MS in biostatistics from the University of Pittsburgh, and I obtained an MPH in epidemiology from the George Washington University in Washington, DC.
