I am a pharmacoepidemiologist with a particular interest in epidemiology methods. I am currently focused on evaluating the application of doubly robust estimators to comparative effectiveness research in observational data (K02HS017950) and developing methods to estimate sex differences in the safety and effectiveness of cardiovascular drugs (R01HL118255). I have experience working in a range of substantive areas including antiretroviral treatment for HIV (R01AI066920) and the effect of OTC analgesics on pregnancy outcomes (R01HD049675).

As director of the Methods Core at the Center for Womenís Health Research, I advise and collaborate with clinical and/or junior investigators in womenís health research who do not have the training or experience with epidemiologic methods to independently develop and implement an analysis plan.


The Part D Research Users Group (pDrug) is a Google Group open to anyone working with the Medicare Part D prescription drug event data. The site serves as a resource for researchers working with these data. Access is limited to members. If you would like to join the group, simply send me an email asking to be added to the membership list.


Also, I am a member of a Causal Inference Research Group at UNC and a fellow of the Cecil G. Sheps Center for Health Services Research.
