Part of my research is in developing and applying statistical models for data that arise in medical research. These data usually involve an element of time, so are either longitudinal or time to event data. I also work with joint models that quantify the effect of longitudinal data on the time to some event. Missing values are usually present and special techniques are required.
Another branch of my research is statistical models that account for spatial correlation. These models are used in spatial epidemiology and the estimation of animal abundance.
