Clinical research focused on evaluating determinants and outcomes of obstetrical conditions. Specifically, research is on cesarean delivery rates, prematurity, and rare diseases of pregnancy using predominantly large administrative databases and secondary analyses of prospective cohorts.  The questions of interest that we study seek to address clinical problems faced by obstetrical care providers and/or maternal health issues that have public health implications.

His research looks not only at problems faced by patients with a given disease, but more broadly, examines issues that are generally relevant to providing better patient-centered care across diseasegroups. Specifically, he has ongoing research in 3 related areas: (1) the evaluation of benefits versus harms of depression screening in medical settings, (2) the development, testing, and provision of patient-centered psychosocial and rehabilitation services to patients with rare diseases, and (3) the evaluation and critique of health services research methods and reporting.
