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.
