Research Summary

As a radiation oncologist and epidemiologist, my research focuses on evaluating determinants of population-based outcomes, health services utilization, and medical decision-making for patients with cancer. I have used national and institutional observational databases as well as systematic reviews and meta-analyses to gain insight into how clinical, demographic, and health system factors affect quality of care and outcomes for this vulnerable population. I also highly prioritize the use of innovative statistical methods to minimize the inherent biases of retrospective analysis, having led the development of a tool known as sequential landmark analysis to control for immortal time bias when interpreting observational analyses studying the survival impact of adjuvant radiation therapy. I have directed the Yale Radiation Oncology Consortium (YROC) and have collaborated closely with the Yale Cancer Outcomes, Public Policy, and Effectiveness Research Center (COPPER). I am also interested in mentoring medical students and residents in comparative effectiveness and health services research.
