Academic Interests

I am interested in evaluating systems of health care organization for individuals with chronic diseases and mental illnesses. In particular, I enjoy studying how novel health care delivery approaches affect cost and quality of care. My hope is that the research I do can lead to improved care for individuals with multiple chronic conditions.
