Research Interests


My research focuses on biostatistics and statistical methods for pharmacoepidemiology and perinatal epidemiology. Topics of specific interest include causal inference in observational studies, particularly large pharmacoepidemiologic studies.  I am co-principal applicant and leader of the methods team for the Canadian Network for Observational Drug Effect Studies.



Accepting PhD students in biostatistics and in epidemiologic methods (with applications to pharmacoepidemiology and perinatal epidemiology). Accepting applications for postdoctoral fellowships in pharmacoepidemiologic methods.



No current positions. I accept applications for data analyst positions on a rolling basis.
