I am a professor in the Department of Population Health and director of the department’s Division of Biostatistics. The goal of my research is to develop novel analytic approaches and apply them to a wide range of areas in health and health care.
I am an expert in statistical methods for longitudinal and missing data and the design and analysis of randomized clinical trials. In particular, I have developed novel approaches to pragmatic trials and rapid-cycle innovation, with a special emphasis on behavioral interventions.
My collaborative research focus is in oncology and behavioral economics. I also direct the Biostatistics PhD Training Program within Sackler Institute of Graduate Biomedical Sciences; the program provides training to students seeking positions in academics, government, and industry.
My research has received substantial extramural funding. I am a fellow of the American Statistical Association and have served on numerous National Institutes of Health study sections. I have co-authored more than 200 peer-reviewed publications, nationally and internationally, in biostatistics and biomedical collaborations.
I earned my BS in applied mathematics from Yale University and my doctorate in biostatistics from Harvard University. Before joining NYU Langone Health in 2016, I taught biostatistics at Columbia University’s Mailman School of Public Health and the University of Pennsylvania Perelman School of Medicine
