I am a gynecologic oncologist and clinical outcomes researcher in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at Mass General Hospital and on the faculty of Harvard Medical School. I co-direct the Inference Lab in MGH's Vincent Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology.
I am interested in methods that allow researchers to draw meaningful insights from observational data. In particular, my work explores how focusing on temporal and spatial variation in clinical practice can help to uncover how health care affects patient outcomes.
Some of my research focuses on increasing understanding of how surgical care impacts the lives of cancer patients. I also work closely with Dr. Clapp to study how antenatal care impacts neonatal outcomes among preterm infants.
In my clinical practice, I provide surgical and medical care to patients with cancers of the female reproductive system, as well as patients with other complex pelvic pathology. Before joining the faculty of MGH and HMS, I was an assistant professor at Columbia University's Vagelos College of Surgeons and Physicians.
