My area of research is statistical analysis and how to apply general statistical methodology to specific pediatric problems. I want to improve statistical analysis in pediatrics to provide more reliable evidence for decision making.
I am interested in providing answers to questions regarding the statistical methodology that applies to pediatric populations, such as appropriate reference ranges. One of my achievements is the development of quantile estimators that are relatively robust for smaller sample sizes.
I am a member of the International Committee for the Clinical and Laboratory Standards Institute. My career spans more 39 years, and I have worked at Cincinnati Children’s since 2013. My research has been published in various respected journals, including Interdisciplinary Neurosurgery, Advanced Techniques and Case Management, Neuroscience, Frontiers in Integrative Neuroscience, Muscle and Nerve, and Neurology.
