Health economics, health services research, health policy, quasi-experimental methods, and causal inference.
I use causal inference methods and large databases to estimate the effects of clinical and policy interventions in real-world settings. I collaborate with patients, clinicians, and decision makers to generate knowledge to improve population health and health care system performance.
