I am a biostatistician/epidemiologist trained in Preventive Medicine. I have extensive experience in Health-Promotion Disease-Prevention statistical research methods including multilevel design, mediation analysis, and the applications of modern missing data methods. I specialize in the application of latent variable modeling and longitudinal data analysis within a structural equation modeling framework. Recent applications have been on identifying predictors of age-related cognitive decline and transition to dementia. My other statistical contributions have been focused on improvements in health care delivery and disease prevention. As an NIH funded principal investigator in autism epidemiology, my work is focused on investigating gene/environment interaction to understand the etiology of autism spectrum and other neurologic disorders.
