    Overview

    My primary interest is to assist investigators with most aspects of their studies, beginning with study design and protocol/grant writing, data cleaning and analysis, and writing of manuscripts. Through the ICTR (Johns Hopkins Institute for Clinical and Translational Research, formerly known as the GCRC), I have worked with investigators from many departments. Some areas of research where I have concentrated effort are brain and thyroid cancer, Alzheimer's disease, atherosclerosis, hypertension, HIV and systemic lupus erythematosus.

    Research Interests

    Epidemiology, biostatistics, epidemiological methods, cooperative research, clinical trials, study design, data analysis, ICTR (Johns Hopkins Institute for Clinical and Translational Research), ARIC (Atherosclerosis Risk in Communities Study)
