My primary goals lie in the advancement of scientific discovery through the development, application and translation of statistical methodolgy. Research-based statistical consulting acts a key interface between science and statistics, and it is here that reciprocal translation can greatly facilitate discovery. I promote collaborative and developmental consultations that enable synergistic relationships between substantive and statistical research.

My recent methodologic interests have concerned the modeling and interpretation of complex longitudinal data, where multifaceted associations, non-standard distributions, and informative censoring can all play a role. In these instances, multiple models and multiple model checking mechanisms are crucial for validating inferences.
