Research Interests & Projects

In my applied work, I have worked on various projects using the kidney transplantation registry data to look at factors that affect transplant outcomes using survival analysis methods.

Methodologically, I have worked on a method to continuously model restricted mean survival time as a function of restriction time. Currently, I am also working on a method to incorporate patient preferences into dynamic treatment regime selection.
