Many areas of statistics interest me. My specific research directions include tree-based methods; variable selection; survival analysis; causal inference (particularly on stratified and individualized treatment effects); statistical machine learning and data mining. Here is a list of my publications and funded grants, which are also available from Google Scholar.
