I come to healthcare improvement by way of health services research. My reason for doing this kind of work is to make things better for patients. I have experience in both epidemiology and mixed methods research (esp. qualitative methods). I am the co-PI on the grant to update the SQUIRE Guidelines, publications guidelines whose aim is to support scholarly reporting of scientifically rigorous work aimed at improving the safety, value and quality of healthcare. My research interests include cancer epidemiology, particularly thyroid and head and neck cancers, and decision-making around those diseases.
