I'm currently spearheading innovative approaches to strategically utilize clinical data for business, operational and patient management efficiency at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, while completing clinical training. This includes directing the science and implementation of a program to identify high-cost and high-risk patients, drawing on technical and operational expertise.

Prior to joining BWH and Harvard Medical School, I served as Medical Officer and Senior Program Manager for the Comparative Effectiveness Research (CER) program at the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) in the Obama Administration. I coordinated the $1.1 Billion CER program and led $400M of data infrastructure initiatives within the CER portfolio. I directly managed a budget of $65M and a team of five medical officers and policy analysts, and directed several key projects including a $19M initiative creating a multi-payer multi-claims database (MPCD) to promote CER, and managed three teams each with 10-15 members. I also served as a consultant in the healthcare practice at McKinsey and Company and a Fellow at The White House.
