Ananda Sen is a Research Professor in the Department of Family Medicine and the Department of Biostatistics. He also has an Adjunct Associate Professor appointment in the Department of Statistics. He received his PhD in Statistics from the University of Wisconsin. The main focus of Dr. Sen's research is recurrent event data, analysis of competing risks, accelerated failure-time modeling, and Bayesian methodologies in survival analysis and reliability. Dr. Sen is an elected member of the International Statistical Institute. He currently serves on the editorial board of the journals Computational Statistics and Data Analysis and Communications in Statistics.

Research Interests & Projects
- My primary area of methodological research is analysis of recurrent event data in both biomedical and engineering contexts. I also work in the areas of competing risks, and accelerated failure time modeling. As a faculty in the Department of Family Medicine, I am heavily involved in collaborative projects in a variety of topics including health services research, management of mental health, cancer prevention through behavioral intervention and lifestyle modification. As a biostatistician on the GI SPORE of the University of Michigan Comprehensive Cancer Center, my applied collaborations have focused on studies of biomarker discovery and dietary interventions in gastrointestinal cancers.
