Research Interests

My research interest is in using large datasets to better understand where inequities arise in pediatric cancers in hopes to inform initiatives to reduce these disparities. Health disparities in pediatric oncology are challenging to study. The rarity of childhood cancer necessitates large cohorts to capture a diverse population. My previous work has used HCUP-KID data to show racial and socioeconomic disparities in access to novel immunotherapy agents in pediatric adrenal tumors. I have also used death certificate records to show disparate mortality rates by specific Hispanic ethnicity in acute lymphoblastic leukemia. I am currently working on a multi-institutional collaboration to investigate disparities in inpatient resource using merged administrative and clinical trial data. I am also working to merge Ohio cancer registry data with CMS Medicaid data to investigate the journey of pediatric oncology patients enrolled on Medicaid.
