As an applied statistician, I am committed to working with basic scientists, epidemiologists, clinicians and other health professionals seeking to answer questions in their own area of research. That I have an opportunity to learn from and work with so many experts across diverse fields is what has kept me at OHSU for 19 years. Most of my collaborations have been in the field of medicine, biochemistry and molecular biology, environmental science, neuroscience, and pharmacology/toxicology. In 2007, I began teaching statistics, mainly to MPH students at OHSU, but have also taught courses to clinicians and laboratory scientists. My own specific interests in statistics focuses on the fitting of specialized models for count data.
