I'm an emergency physician and health services researcher currently based in NYC. The overarching aim of my work is to measure and improve the value-- specifically quality, cost, equity, and patient-centeredness--of emergency care.
I am an expert in leveraging large, publicly available datasets to identify trends and insights in acute care utilization and costs using advanced modeling approaches. I also have expertise in quality and outcome measurement, including patient-centered outcomes, decision science, and mixed methods.
I'm interested in academic and non-academic collaborations at the intersection of emergency care and health policy, including but not limited to: process and payment redesign to advance population health, health economics, health system design, social determinants of health, health disparities, digital health, novel approaches to risk adjustment through geospatial techniques, and improving equity in machine learning and AI-based algorithms.
My funded projects have examined the anticipated impact of alternative payment models for emergency care, changes in the utilization and intensity of acute care, and identifying drivers of variation in ED admission rates. My work has been funded by the Emergency Medicine Foundation and the American Board of Medical Specialties, and I was honored with an AcademyHealth Presidential Scholarship for New Health Services Researchers in 2016. I have also served as a fellow and consultant to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services/ Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation (CMS/ CMMI).
I completed a fellowship in Health Policy Research at Brigham and Women’s Hospital and a Masters in Clinical Epidemiology at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health. I am a graduate of Northwestern University and completed residency in emergency medicine at Bellevue Hospital and NYU Medical Center. I'm a proud native of southern California, distance runner, coffee aficionado, and urban gardener.
