Disparities in Outcomes for People with Epilepsy (PWE)

Using some of the largest and most diverse data on people living with epilepsy, I seek to uncover disparities in comorbidities, multimorbidity, and outcomes while further applying statistical approaches to uncover important drivers of these disparities. Specifically, I use a combination of both traditional and novel statistical techniques in the context of health equity research frameworks to understand nuance and complexities in relationships between individual, treatment, and community-level factors. It is my hope that this work can guide interventions and improve care for people living with epilepsy.
