About me

I am a Statistician and a Clinical Assistant Professor of Biostatistics at the University of Illinois Chicago, with appointments in the School of Public Health, Division of Epidemiology and Biostatistics (primary) and the College of Applied Health Sciences (joint).

My research interests are in the use and development of statistical methods and tools to support policy-making. This includes the quantification of uncertainty of point estimates from predictive models, the formulation of effect sizes and effect size estimators in randomized and quasi-experiments when adjusting for covariates, and extensions of meta-analysis methods to small sample situations. I am also interested in generating empirical evidence about how policy-makers and practitioners make decisions currently, and designing tools that better support their decision-making processes.
