Research Interests

I develop statistical methodology for analyzing complex data sets arising from scientific applications. I have published work in the areas of predictive modeling, signal frequency estimation, measurement error models, and functional data analysis. My current research focuses on causal mediation analysis and causal prediction with applications to cancer and genomic data sets.
