Research Abstract

I am interested in statistical and epidemiological methods, focusing on methods for analyses and designs of epidemiological studies. I have actively conducted methodological research in several biostatistical areas, including methods for the adjustment of estimates of exposure effects for measurement error, misclassification and mis-calibration, methods for evaluating etiologic heterogeneity among disease subtypes, and methods for cost-effectiveness assessment.
