Research focus and accomplishments
Shi uses quantitative methods to understand the associations and trends of different state and national health policies on access to care, service utilization, and outcomes. She’s also interested in using modelling approaches to measure the effects of interventions in cancer prevention, diagnosis, and treatment to inform health care decision making.
Her recent collaborations include studies evaluating health insurance coverage, Medicaid expansion under the Affordable Care Act, and cancer outcomes.
