Research Overview

My main research interests lie on the design of epidemiological studies and development of statistical methods for data from cohort-sampling studies, with emphasis on multivariate survival data. Cohort-sampling studies, which take covariate measurements only on some subsets of the entire cohort, could lead to a major cost savings compared to the full cohort approach. Thus, they are gaining rapidly increasing attention in the public health community. My areas of application include Epidemiology, Dentistry, Cardiovascular disease, Cancer, Proteomics and Veterinary Medicine. Currently, I am involved in an NIH funded project on using scientific curriculum-vitae to study the effects of targeted interventions on research careers in biomedical fields. Also, as a biostatistician at the Connecticut Institute of Clinical and Translational Sciences, I have been actively involved in interdisciplinary collaborative research projects such as biomarker studies for melanoma using proteomics and human brain imaging studies for aging.
