My research explores problems in health outcome and pharmacoepidemiology research, particularly with regards to comparative effectiveness and safety of drug products. The goal of my research is to provide effective strategies and interventions to improve population health and eliminate health disparities.

Additional research interests include mental health, cancer, and disability research, treatment optimization and outcomes for patients with chronic conditions, medication adherence, and quality of care among vulnerable populations.
