I am broadly interested in developing statistical tools for applications relevant to public policy and public health. More specifically I’m interested in:

  • Official Statistics
  • Dependent Data Modeling (Spatial, Temporal)
  • Small Area Estimation
  • Bayesian Methods

I am co-advised by Zehang Li and Paul Parker.
