    Collapse overview
    I'm a member of the Hollings Cancer Center Biostatistics Shares Resource. The majority of my time is spent collaborating with cancer researchers on study designs, sample size considerations, statistical analysis/plans, and grant and manuscript preparation. Projects range from small scale pilot and basic science studies to larger randomized clinical trials. Additionally, I worked several years in the pharmaceutical industry and have a great deal of experience with drug stability studies, laboratory QC best practices, and assay validation and optimization. I have authored and/or co-authored statistical sections of regulatory filings and several peer-reviewed journal articles.

    Newest   |   Oldest   |   Most Cited   |   Most Discussed   |   Timeline   |   Field Summary   |   Plain Text
    PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
