Presently, I am a post-doc in the Department of Biostatistics, Epidemiology and Informatics at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine. My research purview has expanded during this time to include (i) the development of long-term outcome measures for critical care RCTs, (ii) the analysis of cluster randomized trials with composite endpoints, (iii) solid-organ transplant outcomes, and (iv) the use of machine learning techniques to optimize EHR-based prediction. 

I completed my PhD in 2016 under the supervision of Scott Halpern (PhD mentor), Sarah Ratcliffe (dissertation chair) and Dylan Small (MSc in statistics adviser). My doctoral work examined topics related to the design and analysis of RCTs carried out in critically ill patients. This work was funded by the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute through a F-31 NRSA award (PI: Harhay).

In the past I have collaborated with the Economist Intelligence Unit, Drugs for Neglected Diseases initiative, UNICEF ⁄ UNDP ⁄ World Bank ⁄ WHO Special Programme for Research and Training in Tropical Diseases (TDR), and the University of Pennsylvania Pulmonary Vascular Disease Program and Division of General Internal Medicine.
