Hi, and welcome to my website! My background is in applied microeconomics and statistics, but I like working across disciplines and have collaborated with researchers in many fields including bioinformatics, medicine, statistics, computer science, epidemiology, economics, and political science. Since graduate school, I’ve worked in the health space, both as a health economist and as a data scientist. I am generally interested in solving real-world problems using fit-for-purpose tools from economics and statistics, developing new methods as necessary, and building software to make implementation more efficient for practitioners. Some areas of current focus include:
- Simulation and mathematical modeling for cost-effectiveness analysis including development of the R package hesim
- Generalizing relative treatment effects and absolute outcomes from randomized clinical trials to routine practice
- Financial innovation to enable better access to medical treatments
In my free time, I enjoy spending as much time as possible with my wife, Jennifer, and daughter, Evelyn. 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.
