Research Interests

My research interests span the areas of nonparametric and semiparametric modeling, measurement error, and machine learning.  I have specific interests in latent variable models, statistical inference for nonparametric models, Bayesian computation and inference, functional data analysis, shape constrained problems, and statistical applications in genetic, nutrition, metabolism, and climate studies.
