My research lies at the intersection of biostatistics and epidemiology. I have developed innovative statistical methods for:

  • meta-analysis
  • statistical methods accounting for detection limits in biomarker data;
  • statistical methods correcting for selection bias, measurement error, and confounding in epidemiology studies
  • missing, correlated, and survival data analyses
  • innovative Bayesian methods to improve statistical inference in both randomized clinical trials and observational studies
