Professional Interests

Dr. Moen is a health services researcher with expertise in network analysis, biostatistics, and cancer. She leads a multidisciplinary research team with funding from the NIH, seeking to leverage network analysis to optimize cancer care delivery and patient outcomes. She has developed novel network measures characterizing access to multidisciplinary cancer care that recognize the importance of relationships between providers. The long-term goal of Dr. Moen's lab is to improve equitable access to coordinated cancer care teams with a particular focus on rural-residing populations.
