Research Summary

My non-clinical work focuses on developing and evaluating risk assessment tools for breast cancer and using those tools to efficiently use screening technologies and preventive therapies to decrease the burden of breast cancer in our community.

I also perform technology assessments and support cost-effectiveness modeling and budget impact analyses for new medications, medical devices, and health system interventions for the Institute for Clinical and Economic Review.
