What I do

I engage stakeholders and conduct policy research to gather evidence about how precision medicine interventions (drugs and diagnostics) are being integrated into clinical practice. My research interests also include 1.) studying the evidentiary frameworks used by payers to make coverage decisions for genomics-based interventions, and 2.) developing strategies to promote real-world evidence generation and data sharing.
