Hello, I am a Biostatistician in the department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics at Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine. I also have a secondary appointment in the Frances Payne Bolton School of Nursing. As a Biostatistician, I have been collaborating with physicians, nurses, and other scientists. My primary collaborative research interests are in intervention studies. My own research interests are in multiple chronic conditions, adaptive designs, and statistical modeling of longitudinal and survival data. I have been developing and publishing new biostatistical methods arising from my collaborative research. I am an editorial board member of the Journal of Biometrics & Biostatistics, the American Journal of Biostatistics, and Austin Biometrics & Biostatistics; and I review journal articles regularly. I teach the courses: “Likelihood Theory and Applications”, "Multivariate and High-Dimensional Data", and “Design and Analysis of High-Dimensional Data” and mentor doctoral students for their Ph.D. dissertations research.
