Biography
UC Berkeley School of Public Health, Berkeley, CAPhD2007Biostatistics

Overview
I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Population Medicine at the Harvard Medical School and Harvard Pilgrim Health Care Institute and the Department of Epidemiology at the Harvard Chan School of Public Health. My research focuses on the development and application of statistical methods for making valid causal inferences in longitudinal studies with complications such as time-varying confounding, competing events and censoring. I am a Co-Investigator and Biostatistician for the Project Viva Cohort.

PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
