Professional Summary:

The focus and application of my research program is centered on the intersection of pharmaceutical health services and outcomes research, pharmacoepidemiology, comparative effectiveness research and implementation science. My research approach emphasizes multi-disciplinary and collaborative research strategies encompassing both observational and interventional methods across a variety of therapeutic areas. Specifically, my current research has 3 main areas of focus:

1) use of large data sets, data mining techniques, and comparative effectiveness research to predict and evaluate outcomes of acute and chronic medications,

2) implementation of pharmacist collaborative services to improve quality of care and patient safety,

3) optimizing chronic disease management and treatment adherence through cost-effective approaches.
