My research interest focuses on developing and validating statistical methods for applications in public health research, emphasizing both aggregate data and individual participant data meta-analyses of diagnostic and screening test accuracy studies. My research uses computational statistics methods such as parametric and non-parametric bootstrap approaches and deterministic and Monte Carlo expectation-maximization (MCEM) algorithms.
