My primary expertise is in the field of survey methodology, where I have a 30-year track record of testing new data collection methods in both general population and physician samples. My other research interests focus on patient-reported outcomes measurement, developing and testing health measures, health care policy, health care access for vulnerable populations, and learning health systems research, a form of health services research that is defined by its embeddedness in health systems.

Prior to joining SPH, I was the chair of the Division of Health Care Policy & Research and Director of the Survey Research Center within the Department of Health Sciences Research at Mayo Clinic as well as the deputy director of research for the Mayo Clinic Robert D. and Patricia E. Kern Center for the Science of Health Care Delivery.
