Research Focus

My research focuses on statistical methodology. I hope to help researchers make the best use of their data by developing and advancing biostatistical methods. In particular, I am interested in methods for analyzing individual patient data meta analysis, smoothing particularly in the context of mixed models, and methods to analyze clustered or longitudinal data. My collaborative work focuses on respiratory health. I have active collaborations with researchers studying tuberculosis, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, asthma, etc.
