Welcome to my personal page.
My Google Scholar list of published articles is here
I am currently Senior Director of Applied Research and Data Analytics at the Health Research and Educational Trust (HRET) of the American Hospital Association (AHA).
Most recently, I was the Associate Director at the Main Line Health Center for Population Health Research at the Lankenau Institute for Medical Research, and Assistant Professor at Thomas Jefferson University College of Population Health.
Previously, I was a Research Scientist at The New York Academy of Medicine in the Center for Health Innovation , and Assistant Professor at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai in the Population Health Science and Policy Department.
My research agenda aims to identify methodological strategies in which the use of large (open) datasets can be used to improve the design, implementation and evaluation of population health strategies for health systems. My goal is to bring together methodologies generally used in economics, data science, public health research and systems design to reduce health disparities and improve the effectiveness of health delivery models.
