Personal Mission Statement

I love my job as it combines three things that I enjoy doing: collaborative research, teaching, and statistical methodology research. These three components intertwine with each other, methodology research serves collaborative research and teaching, collaborative research and teaching motivates methodology research, and collaborative research enriches teaching with first hand application experience. Being in a medical and health-related research environment, my job fulfill the ultimate goal of statistics: applications.
