My research areas include multivariate modeling of semi-continuous data, latent class models with conditional dependence as applied to the area of record linkage, and joint modeling of medical costs and survival with data from complex surveys.

I have been involved in a vast array of research projects in areas such as cancer, dentistry, behavioral oncology, and more recently in record linkage and health services research.
