My primary work is with Vanderbilt Medical Center's Supportive Oncology Program. I am part of the research group which investigates the after-effects of cancer and its treatment. In particular, I am interested in the impact cancer therapies can have on oral health, and how the health care system can address the unique challenges that maintaining good oral health in this population presents. My areas of statistical interest are empirical Bayes methods, resampling methods, machine learning, and iterated bootstrap methods.
