Professional Interests

My current research interests revolve around challenging methodological and statistical problems in medicine. Applied projects include the Center for Comparative Effectiveness Research in Advanced Imaging in Cancer, the Alternative Breast Cancer Imaging Program, and the Spine Patients Outcomes Research Trial, a multicenter trial of surgery versus nonoperative methods of treating low back pain. I conduct related statistical research in the areas of covariate measurement error for nonlinear regression models and statistical methods for comparative effectiveness research.
