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.

Supervision

 

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

Employment

 

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