I am interested in biostatistics, epidemiology of respiratory diseases including asthma and genetic epidemiology including gene-environment interaction. My methodological expertise includes analysis of survival data, clustered data, longitudinal data and multilevel data, random effects modeling and latent class modeling.
My engaged scholarship is mainly in providing statistical consultation to clinicians and government agencies including Alberta Health and Wellness.
