Research Interests

My research interest is in the design and analysis of clinical studies, analysis of longitudinal and clustered data, and survival analysis.

I have collaborative research experience in breast cancer, colorectal and other urological and endometrial cancers, and more recently, in reproductive health and pregnancy outcomes.
