My methods research focuses on: (1) developing methods to help identify, refine, and evaluate interventions to eliminate health and healthcare disparities (2) developing methods to improve the transparency and conduct of observational studies and post-hoc analyses of clinical trials.
I am currently applying these methods in the areas of pharmacoepidemiology and mental health with connections to aging and cardiovascular disease.
