Personal Statement:

My research is focused on the application of experimental design, multiple regression analysis and categorical data analysis in the areas of occupational health and industrial hygiene.

Additionally I use multiple regression analysis and factorial analysis for survey data in social sciences research. I also work in application of statistical techniques for descriptive statistics, sample size calculations, and power analysis.
