Hi, and welcome to my website! I am a health economist who works at the intersection of economics and data science.
My primary research focus is the estimation and simulation of statistical models from observational and clinical trial data and its implications for decision making. Applications include comparative and cost-effectiveness analysis of health technologies, outcomes research, and pharmaceutical R&D support. I am a proponent of expanded use of data science tools in health economics and develop the R package, hesim, for health economic simulation modeling.
In my free time, I enjoy spending as much time as possible with my wife Jennifer. In my pre-PhD life, I was a rather unsuccessful collegiate baseball player at UC San Diego
whose career was cut short by a shoulder injury. I still enjoy trying to relive my days as an athlete by playing sports when my shoulder permits (usually basketball).
I also somehow enjoy lifting up heavy objects and then putting them back down.
