Research Interests

My research draws primarily from epidemiological and biostatistical methods. I am specifically interested in understanding disease risk factors and patterns of disease in human populations. Work in my “lab” is not traditional wet-lab work; instead it involves collecting or using existing data from human participants. Student projects could involve secondary data analyses using data from the World Health Organization, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Pennsylvania Department of Health, or Meadville Medical Center. Alternatively, students could work with me to collect primary data from human participants on campus or in the Meadville community.
