is a Biostatistician II and joined the
Biostatistics and Bioinformatics Shared Resource in July 2013 in the Department of
Biostatistical Sciences. She provides statistical support to cancer
researchers and clinicians throughout the entire research process, including study
design, data analysis, and manuscript preparation. Additionally, she reviews the statistical
details of research protocols as a member of the Operation Protocol Service
(OPS) to ensure studies collect clinically relevant data that can address their
research objectives with statistical analysis. When she’s not collaborating
with cancer researchers, she is working with scientists towards a better
understanding of juvenile diabetes.
