TEACHING: Currently I teach Nursing 605, Statistical Methods for Quality Improvement, a core course in the DNP program.  In addition, I am a guest lecturer on multiple topics in Nursing 702, Advanced Statistical Methods, a core course in the PhD program.

RESEARCH: My research expertise includes the analysis of survival data, mixed linear methodology and biostatistical consulting.  I currently have productive research collaborations with the Departments of Hepatology and Neonatology in the School of Medicine and with the Department of Psychology in the College of Humanities and Sciences. 

SERVICE: I am a member of the American Statistical Association and the Virginia Academy of Science.  Within the School of Nursing I serve on both the DNP and PhD Curriculum Committees as well as faculty search committees.
