Expertise

My work focuses on understanding and improving population-based health outcomes. My research also assesses factors influencing drug use, medication adherence, drug safety, and the effectiveness of practice-based interventions. The underlying goal of my research is to inform decision-making and policy through evaluation of healthcare interventions.
