Overview
The goal of my research is to help older adults make individualized treatment decisions when they face high-stakes medical decisions like deciding to use blood thinners or undergo a medical procedure. To do this I my work focuses on:

1. Individualizing estimates of benefit and harm for older adults considering anticoagulants for atrial fibrillation
2. Determining the medical, functional, and social characteristics that make older adults vulnerable to poor outcomes
3. Targeting and tailoring of health interventions

To accomplish this, I work collaboratively with patient groups, physicians, nurses, statisticians, informaticists, economists, and epidemiologists. We use descriptive methods, simulation models, causal inference tools, and randomized trials to advance these goals.

PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
