  • Maintain expertise in statistical techniques for health services and outcomes research;

  • serve as in-house consultant on methods.

  • Implement modeling strategies in health care "big data" to address critical population health questions.

  • Plan and implement complex linkages across datasets and multiple sources of administrative, clinical and outcomes data in order to enhance validity of findings.
