My primary appointment is at the Center for Statistical Consultation and Research where I do statistical consulting for the University of Michigan faculty, staff, and graduate students, collaborate on research proposals, and offer workshops. My main collaborators are from the Health Services Research and Development Department at the Veterans Administration Hospital. Naturally, my current research efforts are in the fields of decision analyses, outcomes research, health services research, and various telemedicine research. My recent collaborative work includes evaluation of health burden in women with breast hypertrophy and development of an automated risk-adjusted mortality model for intensive care unit using a large national database. I also work with a radiation oncologist to compare disease specific as well as general quality of life in head and neck cancer patients treated with different types of radiation therapy. I am also interested in cost-effectiveness analyses of various diagnostic modalities.
