BiographyI am a pharmacoepidemiologist and Assistant Professor in the departments of Health Services, Policy & Practice and Epidemiology in the Program in Public Health. I received a PharmD from the University of Rhode Island, a PhD in epidemiology from Brown Medical School, and I completed a post-doctoral fellowship at the Center for Gerontology and Health Care Research at Brown University. My principal area of research interest is the non-experimental study of drug effects, with applications to drug safety and comparative effectiveness research. Most of my work has involved understanding and using health insurance claims data for this purpose. My methodological expertise covers topics related to studying medical interventions in the setting of non-randomized treatment groups and incomplete data (i.e., claims data). My work has been published in several journals, including the Annals of Internal Medicine, and I serve as a peer-reviewer for a range of clinical and epidemiologic journals.
Prior to joining the Brown faculty full-time in 2011, I worked as Senior Scientist at OptumInsight Epidemiology (formerly i3 Drug Safety), an independent research consultancy that conducts pharmacoepidemiologic studies for the biopharmaceutical industry, mostly in the area of drug and vaccine safety. In my consulting practice, I led several post-approval safety studies of drugs and vaccines. Essentially all of his work was based in commercial health insurance claims data and supplemented with information from abstracted medical records.
