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.
