Research Abstract

My primary research interests are in the areas of (1) statistical modeling of longitudinal data with emphasis on cardiovascular and pulmonary outcome variables (2) analysis of clustered data problems with emphasis on opthalmologic applications (3) measurement error problems with emphasis on cancer and nutritional epidemiology. More recently (in the past five years), I have written several papers on developing models for breast cancer incidence. These can be used generally to model the incidence of any cancer.
