I am a Statistician and my research focuses on International Public Health. My statistical methods of interest are clustered data analysis, high-dimensional data (small n, large predictor sets) analysis, structural equation models and Bayesian methods. My current work involves the design and analysis of cluster-randomized trials, evaluating new diagnostic tests, national health systems evaluations and collaborating with scientists in the Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions in the design and analysis of clinical studies. The research areas I work in include TB case finding and diagnostic techniques, HIV/AIDS, Human Nutrition, Women’s Reproductive Health, and Maternal and Child Health. The countries in which I have done or continue to do collaborative work include India, Bangladesh, Nepal, Ethiopia, South Africa, Malawi, Brazil, and Peru.
