Research Focus

My research focuses on the development of methods in the area of evaluating diagnostic tests in the absence of a gold standard, meta-analysis of diagnostic test properties and Bayesian estimation of small proportions. I am also involved in a number of collaborative projects with researchers in technology assessment and epidemiology.
