What makes you passionate about or interested in biostatistics?
I have worked many years with basic and clinical scientists. Too often I see them misuse statistics and make flawed statements and conclusions. I enjoy working with them and teaching them the best ways to plan, conduct, and interpret their data analyses. The epidemiologist in me also loves to discuss with researchers possible areas of bias in their research that uses specimens and data from humans.
Personal Interests & Hobbies
