studying factors; affecting the health and illness of populations, and serves as the foundation

and logic of interventions made in the interest of public health and preventive medicine.

The research is geared to develop novel statistical techniques for handling measurement

error in the major variable of interest, and to handle subjects with partially missing information.

The developed statistical techniques rely on parametric, semiparametric, and nonparametric

Bayesian or classical approaches for flexible and robust modeling.

Research interest keywords: Bayesian methods, Errors-in-covariates, Missing data, and Survival analysis.
