Research Interests & Projects
My research is motivated by the need for new methodology for the design and analysis
of medical and public health investigations. This has grown out of involvement in
studies on topics such as the evaluation of burn care, extracorporeal membrane oxygenation
(ECMO) treatment for neonates with respiratory distress, the treatment of diabetes,
and the transmission of HIV infection. I have a continuing interest in decision analysis,
which has grown out of the need to evaluate screening tests for cancer and other diseases.
