I am a professor in the Department of Population Health and director of its 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 healthcare.

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 chronic disease, pain, and behavioral economics. I also direct PhD dissertations of students in the Biostatistics PhD Training Program within the Sackler Institute of Graduate Biomedical Sciences, a program which provides training to students seeking positions in academics, government, and industry.

My research has received substantial extramural funding. I am an elected fellow of the American Statistical Association and have served on numerous National Institutes of Health study sections. I have co-authored more than 250 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.
