    Collapse Overview
    I am a general internist who specializes in health outcomes and population health research with the goal of improving the health of older, vulnerable adults. Specifically, my research interests include:

    1. Measuring axes of vulnerability (physical, cognitive, social) to determine how vulnerability affects health outcomes
    2. Improving complex clinical decision making for older adults (atrial fibrillation as a model condition)
    3. Implementing research insights into care delivery to improve population health
