Research Summary
  • I am a manager in the Department of Biostatistics at MedStar Health Research Institute. As a result, I work on a variety of studies from all areas in clinical and observational research by contributing to protocol development and grant applications, conducting data analysis and writing manuscripts for publications.
  • My publications reflect this subject variation that comes with being a statistician and research design consultant. My research with mentors and colleagues from the Center for Trauma and the Community so far focused on finding appropriate statistical models to best analyze the data collected from ongoing studies developed by the Center.
