As an Assistant Professor, Statistician and Clinical Trialist in the Epidemiology Data Center, I have collaborated on over 15 NIH funded projects in a variety of fields, including cardiovascular and diabetes epidemiology, child and maternal health, pulmonary function in the HIV+community, preventing pressure ulcers in nursing home residents, and blood transfusions, to name a few.  My primary appointment is in the Department of Epidemiology, with secondary appointments in the Department of Biostatistics and the Clinical and Translational Science Institute.  My interest in health equity stems from my desire to use my expertise (statistics) to advance social justice.  My main contribution in this field has been in helping to identify disparities in time spent seeking medical care in the US, in which I helped a student analyze data from the Time Use Survey--a large national survey.  I have a M.Eng. (Masters of Engineering) in Operations Research and Industrial Engineering (Cornell); an MS and PhD in Statistics from Carnegie Mellon.
