I am interested in developing and tailoring clinical trial methods and designs and statistical methods for clinical epidemiology research. My collaborative work is primarily in cardiovascular and critical care epidemiology. I am especially interested in cardiovascular disease and epidemiologic transitions in low and middle income countries.
