He currently manages an expansive, nationally funded portfolio of health policy research and implementation projects at Brigham and Women’s Hospital. His portfolio includes investigating provider- and hospital-level factors associated with racial and ethnic disparities in surgical oncology; evaluating the fiscal impact of consolidating care of complex patients; evaluating the safety profile and pharmacovigilance assessment of novel cancer drugs; and, examining systematic factors that lead to opioid over-prescribing patterns after surgery. His implementation work includes development and design of novel digital decision-support tools based on behavioral economics within the Partners Healthcare (PHS) eCare system.

In addition, he is also a Research Associate in Surgery at Harvard Medical School, where he was previously a Fellow in Bioethics at the Center for Bioethics. His research in medical ethics and regulatory frameworks includes understanding cultural competency in global healthcare delivery; role of bioethicists in developing protective systems within automated medical decision-making systems that use artificial intelligence and machine learning; and, investigating the role of physician emotional intelligence in bioethical decision-making.
