HOME DEPARTMENT

RESEARCH INTERESTS

  • My current and future research interests include development of novel and efficient statistical methods to address issues arising in statistical genetics and biostatistics applications. I am mainly interested in modeling correlated survival data that arises in many genetic and biomedical problems under various forms including paired data (twins), clustered data (longitudinal, recurrent data), and familial data.

  • Recently, I have been involved in familial studies of colorectal and breast cancers under complex study designs to provide reliable lifetime risk estimates of those cancers associated with mutated genes.
