What experiences and skills have you developed through the Fellowship?
Since 2014, I've co-led the design and analysis of the transition of care research project. I've become familiar with analyzing Medicaid claims databases and electronic health record systems, as well as applying sophisticated econometric models in my research. In addition, I've improved my communication skills through my collaborative work with health economists, pharmacists, and statisticians.
What are your career goals?
I'd like to start my professional career at a pharmaceutical company or a healthcare consulting firm. I have a passion for providing research-based solutions to a great problem facing society today: how can we model healthcare decisions to secure the health of our current population and for future generations?
What do you like to do for fun?
I love travelling around the world and playing basketball and badminton.
