Research Interest

My research has been a combination of theoretical and applied statistical research. You can click here to see my curriculum vitae. At the end of this web page, I give more information about my research interest here. My major theoretical and applied areas:


I teach and advise students primarily in the MSc/PhD program in Biostatistics
I also work with many students in other areas (such as epidemiology) on there statistical problems.

This year I am teaching a course in mathematical statistics for MSc biostatistic students and an introductory course in applied Bayesian methods.


I have been a statistical consultant for a number of groups in a wide variety of areas. Please see my cv for an updated accounting of my experience.
