I am a health services researcher educated in statistics and applied mathematics. My research has focused on health care utilization and cost of care of nursing home residents and the organization of professional medical staff in nursing homes. I seek to understand potentially modifiable organizational behavior and strategies and the effect of implementation of policies on those organizational behaviors. In my research I have emphasized the use of novel statistical methods, building sophisticated data systems for complex analyses, and designing statistical models and methods. I have been particularly concerned with the way in which methods and models are used, developing methods to more clearly present and understand their results.
