Research Statement

My statistical research interests include Bayesian statistics, spatial statistics, epidemiological methods and small area estimation. Recently, I have been developing a Bayesian approach to the analysis of two-phase studies with binary outcomes and categorical covariates. My collaborative work has included studies in air pollution and cardiovascular health, as well as spatial clustering of myelodysplastic syndromes. My ongoing collaborative research focuses on pediatrics research.
