Research Activities

I hold a CIHR / Ontario Ministry of Health & Long Term Care Applied Chair in Health Services and Policy Research focusing on Equity in Resource Allocation. I have interests in a number of areas in clinical epidemiology and health care research, including economic evaluation, quality of life measurement with a focus on computerized utility elicitation, decision analysis modeling and simulation (including methodological advances in decision analysis), and health services research in the context of HIV infection, focusing particularly on access to care for injection drug users and other marginalized populations. A particular research interest relates to how to incorporate equity concerns into resource allocation decisions in a manner that is defensible, transparent, and principled.
