Research

Research Summary/Interests

My current work in medicine has three components: 1) I conduct empirical studies to understand the thinking that underlies success and failure in the delivery of clinical care to patients with a chronic illness such as type 2 diabetes, 2) I use computational modeling and simulation to investigate the comparative effectiveness of alternative policies for managing risk and cost in the treatment of patients with multiple chronic diseases, and 3) I develop technologies and conduct studies of strategies for use in the personalization of care.
