    Collapse Overview
    I am an internist and clinical epidemiologist whose scholarship aims to improve the care of older, vulnerable adults. My research goals are to:

    1. Individualize treatment decisions for older adults facing high stakes therapeutic decisions by studying atrial fibrillation in older adults as a model condition
    2. Measure vulnerability and describe the settings in which vulnerability results in poor health outcomes
    3. Build evaluation into the design of population health interventions

    To accomplish this, I work collaboratively with physicians, nurses, statisticians, informaticists, economists, and epidemiologists. We use descriptive methods, causal inference tools, and randomized trials to advance these goals.

    Altmetrics Details PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication.
