Research Interests

I have a broad range of statistical interests that focus on estimation, prediction and inference in complex models with clustered data. This includes longitudinal data modeling, prediction models, survival analysis, length biased data, joint modeling of longitudinal and survival data, multiple testing, missing data and mixed-effects models. The areas of application that I'm most interested in include nutrition, maternal child health and neuroimaging.
