I am a health services researcher dedicated to using real world data to predict individual- and population-level health outcomes and inform health policy. My postdoctoral research experience at a large safety net hospital has exposed me to the challenges to, and the urgency of, addressing the opioid crisis, and I productively research questions of addiction and infectious disease by leveraging real world data, simulation modeling, and innovative methodology. I am most interested in answering important scientific questions with immediate policy and practice relevance; as such, I work closely with the Massachusetts Department of Public Health and the NIDA-sponsored Center for Health Economics of Interventions for Substance Use Disorder, HCV, and HIV (CHERISH) and stakeholders from policy and research backgrounds on these important questions.
