Descriptions of my current research projects and R code downloads can be found on my lab page.
My methodological interests include semi-parametric methods for missing data, longitudinal data, and survival analysis. In some of my work and student projects, these interests come together in the analysis of observational data, causal inference, dynamic treatment regimes, and personalized medicine. I serve as one of the statistical trainers for Dr. Sally Thurton’s T32 environmental health biostatistics training grant. On the substantive side, I collaborate with colleagues and researchers across the university and abroad, over several disciplines, but mostly in public health and medicine. I have collaborated in HIV epidemiology and prevention for more than 20 years and was the core director of the Biostatistics and Bioinformatics Core in the University of Rochester’s Center for AIDS Research. I currently serve as the on-call statistician for the Department of Ophthalmology and Flaum Eye Institute. Other groups with whom I collaborate actively include the School of Nursing, and departments of cardiology, neurology and family medicine.
