Areas of Interest: 

My research interests include survival analysis, longitudinal data analysis with non-ignorable missing data, high dimensional data analysis, design and analysis of clinical trials, and evaluation and development of biomarkers.  I am currently serving as an Associate Editor of Biometrics and Journal of Nonparametric Statistics. I am a Fellow of the Institute of Mathematical Statistics, a Fellow of the American Statistical Association, an Elected Member of the International Statistics Institute, and an Elected Fellow of the Royal Statistical Society.  

I collaborate extensively with investigators in biomedical research and public health, especially in cancer research.  I am Director of UCLA’s Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer Center Biostatistics Shared Resource (BASE Unit). I currently also serve as Director of Biostatistics for UCLA’s Center for Excellence in Pancreatic Diseases, Co-Director of Biostatistics for an NIH-funded P01 program grant on stem-cell engineering in men with melanoma, and Director of Biostatistics for an NIH-funded P01 program grant on targeting diet-induced promotion of Kras-initiated pancreatic adenocarcinoma.
