Associate Professor, Department of Population Health
I am a biostatistician interested in health services research, cluster randomized trials, and causal inference for secondary data analysis. My current research involves collaborations in palliative care, geriatric care, and addiction.
In addition, I developed simstudy, an R software package that enables researchers, teachers, and students to easily generate simulated study data for a broad range of study designs. The package and how to use it are described in my blog, ouR data generation.
At the Mailman School of Public Health at Columbia University, where I completed my DrPH, my research explored methodologies for analyzing treatment strategies for nursing home residents with dementia at the end of life.
I earned an MPA from the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs at Princeton University and an MS in statistics from the Zicklin School of Business at Baruch College. My BA is from Williams College.
