My research program is focused psoriatic arthritis (PsA), an inflammatory arthritis with potentially devastating outcomes that affects around 30% of patients with psoriasis. The mission of my research program is to improve outcomes in PsA through patient-centered center research aiming to develop improved methods of early identification, outcome measures and personalized medicine strategies. I am an expert in the care of patients with PsA and founder and Director of the Penn Psoriatic Arthritis and Spondyloarthritis Program. I completed a Master of Science in Clinical Epidemiology in order to integrate pharmacoepidemiology and observational methodology into studies of PsA. My areas of expertise include epidemiology and pharmacoepidemiology in inflammatory arthritis, biostatistical methods for observational studies (e.g., complex time to event modeling, prediction modeling), outcome measures (e.g., qualitative and quantitative/psychometric assessment), and more general qualitative methods.
