Research Interests:
I have broad interests and expertise in developing statistical methodology and applying it in biomedical research, particularly cancer and pediatric heart disease. My methodological research focuses on machine learning, prognostic modeling, correlated data, survival analysis, and competing risks, with applications to health services and outcomes research.

Research Projects:
I study fundamental issues related to cancer care delivery and outcomes in the population, using national registries such as the SEER and National Cancer Database (NCDB), claims data such as Medicare and Optum, and the linked SEER-Medicare database. Since 2016, I have been engaged in developing statistical methods for quality assessment to drive quality improvement initiatives within the Pediatric Cardiac Critical Care Consortium (PC4), a multi-institutional quality collaborative for children with critical cardiovascular disease.
