    I am a Specialist statistician in the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) Department of General Internal Medicine at the Center for Tobacco Control Research and Education (CTCRE). My research focuses on the use of sophisticated statistical methods for addressing problems common in addiction-related research, including tobacco, missing data, comorbid conditions, and multiple drug use. I am an active collaborator, consultant, and co-author with numerous investigators, post-doctoral fellows, and other trainees primarily at UCSF. As a methodologist and statistician, a great deal of my published work typically comes from a group science approach with all publications including multiple co-authors. My role is typically as a quantitative methodologist, and I help in the planning and design of studies, monitoring of data collection and assurance of the quality of the data. I also serve as a mentor to postdocs and others when performing data management and routine and non-routine analyses, and to directly perform novel or advanced statistical analyses. Since 2014, I have served as a statistician on Dr. Ling’s U01 study evaluating novel interventions to prevent tobacco use among young adults in bars and nightclubs at CTCRE.
