Professional Interests:

Dr. Moen’s research program uses state-of-the-art data science methods to study variation in cancer care delivery and patient outcomes. Specific interests include evaluating physician patient-sharing networks to examine variation in cancer care delivery, care coordination, and how novel cancer tests and treatments are adopted by clinicians. We are also working to leverage network methods to integrate diverse sociodemographic, clinical, and health care utilization datasets to better inform risk prediction in cancer patients. The ultimate goal of Dr. Moen’s research is to contribute to efforts in streamlining high quality cancer care to optimize patient outcomes.
