Research Interest

As a health workforce researcher with a career focus on organizational efficiency I am interested in access to care, and task transfer. My research goal is to develop a maximum substitution model for all aspects of healthcare. This work employs economics, policy analysis, medical anthropology, sociology, history and industrial engineering. Such work is collaborative and could not be done without the invaluable input of many colleagues and students over the years.
