1. Survival analysis: I explore hazards regression using free knot splines and study its asymptotic behaviors with applications in health sciences.
  2. Modeling of correlated data and generalized linear models: I exploit exchangeability and partial exchangeability to model correlated data common biological and medical sciences.
  3. Semi-parametric regression: I explore asymptotic efficiency in semi-parametric models.
  4. Robust statistics: I explore robust regression with depth functions.
  5. Empirical likelihood: I explore empirical likelihood with infinitely many constraints, maximum empirical likelihood estimation and semiparametric efficiency. Variable selection under empirical likelihood loss.
