PhD projects

My research focuses on utilizing large national trauma databases to identify contributors to variation in clinical care (aka patients not receiving recommended best practices). Contributors are then further explored using a mixed methods approach. Examples of contributors include: racial disparities and institutional barriers to guideline concordant care.
