My research concerns statistical methods for missing data, causal inference, and sensitivity analysis, especially in HIV/AIDS. Much of my recent work focuses on HIV in sub-Saharan Africa. Current projects include development of methods for analysis of large-scale observational data, optimizing use of limited information for clinical monitoring of patients on antiviral therapy, and analysis of HIV sequence data in studies of drug resistance.

I am a faculty member in the Department of Biostatistics and the Center for Statistical Sciences, and have been on the Brown faculty since 1995. I completed my doctoral work in biostatistics at Harvard under the direction of Nan Laird. Prior to that I taught high school mathematics in Los Angeles.

My research concerns the development of statistical methods for missing data, causal inference, and sensitivity analysis, with focus on applications in HIV and behavioral sciences. I have a long-standing interest in HIV and AIDS, which still exerts an enormous burden on society, particularly the most vulnerable; I am inspired by the contributions statisticians have made to understanding, treating and preventing HIV, and am motivated by what remains to be done.

As part of my collaborations in HIV, I serve as Co-Director of the Biostatistics Program for AMPATH, an international consortium of universities in the US, Canada and Kenya focused on treatment and prevention of HIV in Kenya; co-Director of the Biostatistics Core for the Lifespan/Tufts/Brown Center for AIDS Research; and PI for the Biostatistics Core for the Brown Alcohol Research Center for HIV. My basic and collaborative research is funded by the NIH and USAID.

I teach both introductory and advanced courses in biostatistics, and supervise 1-2 PhD students at any given time. Between 2003 and 2012 I directed the Biostatistics Graduate Program.
