I am currently the principal investigator of the NIH funded project
"Longitudinal Analysis for Diverse Populations" (R01CA096885). My work on this
project involves the quasi-least squares (QLS) approach for analysis of longitudinal
data. For more description of our project and of my colleagues and the students who are
working with me on this research, please click on the appropriate link in the link
section of this web-site.
In addition to my work on the LADP project, I am the lead statistician on several
collaborative studies in Psychiatry and Pediatrics. I am also a co-investigator on NIH
funded interventions to promote weight loss in African-American women. A feature of these
collaborative studies is that they are all longitudinal and yield data suitable for
analysis with the methods developed, or studied, in our LADP project.
To complement my research activities, I am actively involved in teaching in our
department. For example, I am currently teaching Linear Models in our Phd program in
Biostatistics. I am also working with several students on research projects. For more
