My research focuses on two major areas. The first is statistical methods development for electronic health data with a particular focus on development of machine learning techniques to handle censored data. Second, I work on novel methods for causal inference and estimation of dynamic treatment regimes (DTRs). This includes methods for novel clinical trials (e.g., SMART designs) used to test DTRs. I also collaborate on projects related to transplantation, smoking cessation, cardiovascular disease, and infectious disease.
