Serving as an Associate Research Scientist, I am a member of the Biostatistics Shared Resources (BSR) team of the Yale Cancer Center and a reviewer of its Protocol Review Committee.

My expertise and research interests include: clinical trials methodology, clinical research based on electronic health records, systematic reviews & evidence synthesis methods (e.g. network meta-analysis, diagnostic/prognostic accuracy reviews), generalized linear mixed models (e.g. usage in count data modeling, repeated measures, and cluster randomized trials), Bayesian approaches to health-care evaluation (e.g. hierarchical models, simultaneous evidence synthesis and cost-effectiveness modeling), etc.
