About Me

I am a “full-stack” health-services researcher. My research interests cover the gamut of health-services research (HSR) and include traditional clinical outcomes research, patient-reported outcomes (PRO), health-technology assessment (HTA) and comparative effectiveness research (CER), health-care delivery research, econometrics, epidemiology/population health, dissemination and implementation science (D&I), and management and policy studies. I have a particular interest in data-science methods, informatics and data-engineering technologies, visualization, geospatial analysis, network analysis, and causal inference.

I fully subscribe to what Sandro Galea and others have called “an epidemiology of consequence.” I try to keep my research relevant and impactful, and thus a lot of it utilizes methods from quality & safety (Q&S) and dissemination & implementation science (D&I) frameworks.

My goal is to develop “metrics that matter” — standardized methods to assess outcomes that are meaningful to patients and clinicians. I focus especially on improving integration of these data into the clinical workflow of multidisciplinary teams, where communication and coordination of care are critical for success. Our main project involves implementation of a Standard Set of outcome measures for cleft lip/palate across a learning-health network, the Allied Cleft & Craniofacial Quality-Improvement and Research Network (ACCQUIREnet).
