Research Summary

My primary interests are in the application of statistical methods to medical and social-science research. I have a long history of research in psychiatry and psychology with an emphasis on studies of addiction. My work in modeling latent variables has also lead to a productive collaboration which has uncovered sub-phenotypes among patients with acute respiratory distress syndrome. As other colleagues do, I also consult with scientists across a wide range of research areas.
