Bayesian biostatistics • epidemiology • diagnostic tests • research design.
My research focuses on Bayesian biostatistical modeling. I am currently focusing on three particular topics: diagnostic tests in the absence of a gold standard, Bayesian methods for study design and sample size determination, and biostatistical consulting and collaboration.
