My research concerns the application of biostatistical methods to problems in cancer research identified through my collaborations with clinical investigators and basic scientists. In recent years this work has principally followed two main themes: (1) predictive data mining particularly using data from gene expression microarrays; and (2) survival analysis including the application of kernel smoothing to the estimation of the density and hazard functions from right censored data. I also have long standing interests in the design and analysis of prognostic factor studies and the design and analysis of cancer clinical trials.
