I am a statistician and Assistant Professor in the Department of Neurology and Neurotherapeutics. I have over five years of experience working in neurological research and currently provide statistical assistance to the Perot Foundation Neuroscience Translational Research Center, having aided over 20 clinician-investigators across several neurology specialties with study design and data analysis, as well as the presentation of results. Through such collaborations, I have developed an understanding of data elements commonly collected in the neurosciences and I have developed a knowledge of limitations in current statistical methods. This has allowed me to focus on the development of novel statistical approaches tailored to meet these issues. My research interests include analysis in the presence of informative censoring, Bayesian modeling, analysis of latent variables inferred from multivariate measurements, joint modeling of longitudinal and time-to-event data, and analysis of high-dimensional data.
