Assistant Scientist at Department of Epidemiology at the Johns Hopkins University.

My primary interest is in the design, conduct, and analysis of clinical trials. My work in clinical trials has involved testing interventions for both the treatment and prevention of disease. Most of my experience has been in trials of psychiatric diseases and eye diseases.

Clinical trials are experiments designed to evaluate new interventions to prevent or treat disease in humans. The interventions evaluated can be drugs, devices (e.g., hearing aid), surgeries, behavioral interventions (e.g., smoking cessation program), community health programs (e.g. cancer screening programs) or health delivery systems (e.g., special care units for hospital admissions). We consider clinical trials experiments because the investigators rather the patients or their doctors select the treatment the patients receive.
