About me

  • I'm a Professor of Biostatistics and currently involved in both methodologic and applied research. My methodologic research is primarily concerned with methods for causal inference in observational studies, methods for analyzing sibling (e.g. twin) data, and methods for doubly robust estimation. I'm giving statistical support to applied researchers in various fields, such as genetic epidemiology and nutritional epidemiology.
