Associate Dean for Clinical Research
M.D. (Doctor of Medicine)
Research and teaching
I have three main research areas:
1) Health outcomes research in neurosciences, particularly the evaluation of medical and surgical interventions, assessment of clinically important change, quality of life, economic analyses and meta-analyses. I have addressed both methodological and clinical aspects of these research areas
2) Health services research, particularly using linked administrative databases and health surveys, as well as determining the appropriateness and necessity of clinical interventions
3) Establishing a successful Clinical Research Unit within the Hotchkiss Brain Institute. This unit supports study design, data management, and data analysis for clinical research in the neurosciences.
