Areas of Expertise

My general research interest spans the areas of health services research, policy and management, health promotion and education, and occupation health and safety. The research agenda I have been pursing throughout my graduate studies until now is organized around the following main axes: (1) the evaluation of health outcome initiatives (HOIs), with an emphasis on cost effectiveness and policy impact of social-determinants-focused Health outcome initiatives; (2) the relationship between HOIs and population health, (3) the evaluation of state-by-state Medicaid-related policies and their impact on reimbursement, physician behavior, and cost-containment efforts; (4) the generation of new knowledge through the development of systematic reviews, meta-analyses, and overviews of reviews to support evidence-based practices in health care; (5) the evaluation and identification of the relationship between cost and disease prevalence, prevention and treatment options for chronic conditions; and (6) the association between risk factors both on an individual and organizational level, as well as worker safety and health.
The unifying theme and goal of my research agenda is to produce original and methodologically rigorous studies that are respected by, and relevant to, both practitioners and academics.
