Research Interests

Dr. Dublin’s research interests include pharmacoepidemiology, pregnancy outcomes and perinatal epidemiology; aging; and cardiovascular epidemiology. Her work uses real-world health care data from Group Health and many other sources to better understand the safety and effectiveness of medications and other medical interventions.  She often focuses on the impact of interventions in vulnerable populations, particularly pregnant women and older adults. She also has interest and expertise in using novel statistical and epidemiologic methods to answer real-world questions, such as the use of two-phase study designs to reduce bias and Natural Language Processing  to extract information from electronic medical records (EMRs).  She is the Group Health site Principal Investigator for the Medication Exposures in Pregnancy Risk Evaluation Program (MEPREP), a multisite collaboration that has developed data sets including 1.2 million pregnancies across 11 health plans to examine medication safety in pregnant women.
