I am a health services researcher interested in understanding the impact of (1) delivery system actions on health care spending and quality indicators, (2) provider consolidation on clinical care integration and (3) health care policy on delivery system actions. My dissertation work represents the culmination of a robust training in statistics and study design and a formative professional experience at a large health system provider. I measure the extent of variation in quality performance across delivery systems and identify organizational characteristics and processes that are predictive of better or worse care quality.
