    Collapse Overview
    I am an Associate Professor in the Division of Biostatistics of the Department of Preventive Medicine at the University of Southern California (USC). My work focuses on on statistical methods and applications in environmental epidemiology and exhaled breath biomarkers. I lead an NIEHS-funded R01 on statisical methods for exhaled nitric oxide and I lead the statistical group working on methods for sensor-based, integrated health monitoring systems for measuring environmental, physiological, and behavioral factors in epidemiological studies of asthma in children.

    Altmetrics Details PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication.
