I have expertise in analysis of administrative datasets, survey methodology, and the development and testing of pediatric measures for quality improvement. I also design and evaluate interventions for primary prevention of unintentional injury. I am the PI of an R01 project funded by the NICHD to test the efficacy of an ED-based mobile health intervention to promote size-appropriate child passenger safety behaviors with the goal of reducing preventable injuries and deaths from car crashes.

I serve as the co-chair of the Injury Control Special Interest Group of the Academic Pediatric Association. I am a decision editor for Academic Emergency Medicine.[Shorten text]
