Research Interests & Projects

My research interests focus on the statistical methods for sequential multiple assignment randomized trial (SMART) in small samples. In particular, I am developing methods to estimate the response rates of treatments or dynamic treatment regimes in SMART when the outcome of interest is binary. In addition, I am also working on the application of adaptive designs in SMART.
