Research Interests: Development and application of methods for recurrent event data, survival data, and longitudinal data; design and analysis of clinical trials. Collaborations include cancer research, blood and marrow transplant (BMT), tobacco use and smoking cessation, and health disparity research.
My methodological research interests include: Recurrent gap time data analysis, Dependent data resampling, Recurrent events under case-crossover design, Survival analysis. Some publications are:
