Research interests

The underlying theme of my research interests is using longitudinal data to solve problems in public health:

  • Inference for comparing survival across multiple dynamic treatment regimens based on observational longitudinal data.
  • Applications to epoetin dosing strategies for hemodialysis subjects with chronic kidney disease.
  • Joint modeling of longitudinal and survival data in the context of causal inference.
