Brief sketch
I earned an MS and a PhD in Statistics from Cornell University, and a BA in Mathematics and German Language and Literature from Washington University in St. Louis. My area of statistical expertise is methods for and applications to correlated data, including longitudinal cohort studies and medical imaging data. I am heavily involved in collaborative research with other faculty in the School of Public Health, the Medical School, the College of Pharmacy, and the School of Nursing. My collaborative research has historically been in longitudinal epidemiological studies, but has recently expanded into human and animal studies using structural and functional imaging (NMR spectroscopy, MRI, fMRI, etc.). I have worked in the areas of cancer, cardiovascular disease, geriatric pharmacoepidemiology, endocrinology, environmental health, and ecology/wildlife biology. My collaborative work allows me to learn about wide ranging areas of science, which is what drew me to statistics many years ago. I collaborate extensively with members of the Center for Magnetic Resonance Research, and I am a member of the University of Minnesota Masonic Cancer Center.
