My research interests include epidemiological and statistical methods for cohort (both clinical and interval) studies and application of these methods primarily to HIV cohort studies. I have specific interest in developing new methods as well as adapting approaches from other fields as novel solutions to specific epidemiologic questions. Examples include competing risk methodologies and extension to comparing multiple event types, random forests, bootstrap model averaging and multimodel inference
