Research Interests & Projects

Cost-effectiveness analysis

I am interested in evaluating the cost-effectiveness of new public health policies and the use of new drugs and devices. I am interested in interventions with uncertain or complex outcomes.  Specifically, I have conducted cost-effectiveness analyses of infectious disease interventions, chronic disease interventions, and analyses of new drugs and devices. 

Patient education and decision-making: breast cancer
