Research Overview

(1) Item response theory models and latent variable models; precision medicine and subgroup analysis; model selection and multiplicity; Time series and longitudinal analysis; nonparametric methods.
(2) InCHIP has lots of projects related to health behavior, health behavior change, health intervention, which are quite easy to connect with my research interests. I think it will be a win-win situation by applying some of those methodology and modeling developments of my research in this direction with InCHIP’s application. (3) I have collaborated with “dimension reduction group” in EEB department at UCONN and I have participated in their two NSF projects. One paper is accepted by PNAS and the other paper is ready to submit. Besides, I as a Co-PI submitted a NSF program with them.
