Personal profile

Area of Expertise

My training in theoretical statistics, plus years of collaborations in the areas of public health, medicine, nursing and psychiatry puts me at an extremely advantageous position as a researcher at the interface of interdisciplinary and translational research. I possess an interdisciplinary program of research, facilitated by cross-discipline collaborations with projects as diverse as community-based participatory research involving underserved populations, such as the homeless, marginalized ethnic communities, women’s health, and HIV/AIDS, as well as intervention studies in public health. Most of my collaborations include vulnerable populations with chronic and multiple health disparities. This work has significant public health implications, impacting how vulnerable populations are viewed and treated.
My research involves homeless adults and youth, prison parolees and ex-convicts, clients in methadone maintenance, Native Americans, certain at-risk Hispanic and Asian communities.
I have been a PI and co-PI statistician on many federal, state and foundation funded grants. In the area of statistical methods, my research interests include:
1. Survey Sampling (focus: small area estimation), a technique used when subpopulation sample sizes are too small to provide adequate precision for direct estimators;
2. Survey Sampling (focus: randomized response rate) used to elicit a ‘truthful’ response on sensitive feature(s) from the sampled respondents (of a finite labeled population), so that eventually the population mean of the sensitive feature can be unbiasedly estimated;
3. Experimental Design (focus: Optimal Design), a class of experimental designs that are optimal with respect to some statistical criterion and given a statistical model.
