Ph.D., North Carolina State University - 2007

I work closely with clinical and quantitative colleagues to provide statistical leadership, guidance and mentoring on the design, execution, and analysis of clinical research studies. My work includes design and analysis of observational studies (including large cardiovascular registries, and clinical care databases linked with electronic health record data) and early-phase trials in pediatric populations. My statistical interests include study design, linear and non-linear mixed effects models, survival analysis, biology- and mechanism-based models, and statistical thinking and learning.
