I joined OCHIN, Inc. as a Health Disparities Investigator after receiving my PhD in Epidemiology and Biostatistics in the Department of Population and Quantitative Health Sciences at Case Western Reserve University. Broadly, I specialize in the use of complex health care data, paired with traditional statistical techniques and novel machine-learning and data mining approaches to understand disparities and inequities in health, health care, and health outcomes.
I’ve also created the multimorbidity and socialrisk R packages. The multimorbidity package aims to provide a uniform and simple approach to generate comorbidity, multimorbidity, and frailty measures based on claims or other administrative data while the socialrisk package has a similar approach but to identify social risks in these data. You can see an overview of the packages and their features here: multimorbidity and socialrisk.
