Bio

I have a broad interest in survival analysis, longitudinal data analysis, spline regression methods, with applications to clinical and health services studies. I am particularly interested in the analysis of recurrent event data, medical cost data, and joint models of multi-process data. Recently I am working on personalized medicine in pharmacogenetic trials and analysis of high-dimensional epigenetics data.

I am particularly interested in the analysis of recurrent event data, medical cost data, and joint models of multi-process data. Recently I am working on personalized medicine in pharmacogenetic trials and analysis of high-dimensional epigenetics data. I collaborate with clinicians in various medical fields, e.g., cancer, cardiovascular, addiction, nephrology, infectious disease, asthma, and diabetes.

Since 2007 I have been PI of 3 NIH and AHRQ grants. I am currently associated editor of Statistics in Medicine and editorial board member of Journal of the National Cancer Institute and Frontiers in Addictive Disorders. I am standing member of NIH Biostatistical Methods and Research Design Study Section (2016-22), the only study section focusing on biostatistical methodology development. I also review grant frequently for Health Services Organization and Delivery Study Section and other NIH special emphasis sessions.

Finally, I am very interested in big data research. I propose and help organize a workshop on medical data sciences in Northwestern University Medical School.[Shorten text]
