Research Focus: My research outlined how to combine data and evidence in methods for meta-analysis of observational studies in epidemiology (MOOSE). I applied these guidelines to how iron indicators can be used to estimate risk of colorectal cancer, and understand how public health systems improve health outcomes during disasters. Additionally, I studied how health incentives can be offered to increase follow-up HIV testing in Zambia. I’m interested in how health can be improved through innovative data structures.
