My research interests are: I aim to develop methods for analysis of observational studies. Specifically, I am methodologically interested in causal inference, covariate measurement error, applied statistical learning, and their intersections. My applied area of interest is clinical epidemiology/randomized trials in oncology, including endocrine, lung, and ENT cancer, and novel treatment modalities. I also dabble in high dimensional omics data analysis using shrinkage methods from industry and collaboration experience.
