Professional Summary 


Research interests

My primary research goal is to improve the way communities use local data, research findings, and other information for planning and decision-making. This includes work on the impact of data quality limitations on estimates of preventable mortality, and finding ways to help communities connect their epidemiologic surveillance findings to needed activities or policy changes, including investigating and countering structural racism. The close relationship between CityMatCH and many urban communities provides opportunities to study how data is used in varied circumstances by different audiences.
