Most of my statistical methods research has been with correlated non-normal data, with early work in time series and more recently in longitudinal and clustered data. I have worked collaboratively in nutrition and physiology, and more recently in cardiology with an excellent group of investigators and statisticians at the Denver VA.
I am currently most interested in clustered non-normal and time to event analyses in outcomes research problems arising from my work in cardiology. These problems involve modeling sequences of conditions, treatments, outcomes and costs using electronic health record data to study the behavior and performance of health care systems and the outcomes of patients.
I most enjoy mentoring and working with small groups of students and investigators, because the teaching and learning goes both ways.

What makes you passionate about or interested in biostatistics?
I most enjoy working with students and colleagues on modeling interesting data and systems. I like the connection statistical models provide between math, probability, and real things.
