I have mentored Master-level SPH students and fellows in projects related to epidemiology of rheumatologic diseases and pharmacoepidemiology. These projects have culminated in publications, a Master degree thesis, as well as poster and oral presentations at national meetings. I hope to continue mentoring trainees who have interests in epidemiology related to specific research projects, development of research themes, or development of grant applications.
