Available to Supervise:
I am currently looking for multiple graduate students for the following two projects (with methodologic focuses on epidemiologic contexts):
    1. Improving Causal Inference Methods in Statistics for Analyzing High-dimensional / Big Data
    2. Developing and Evaluating Causal Inference Methods for Pragmatic Trials to address nonadherence
Graduate students in statistics, biostatistics, epidemiology or computer science with some methodological expertise in statistics and statistical software are encouraged to contact me directly (particularly those with some of the following skills: making data requests, extracting analytic data from administrative / survey databases, running statistical analyses, coding statistical estimators, conducting simulation studies, excellent scientific writing, ability to work on a multidisciplinary team). Interested candidates should email me (at my UBC email address listed below) their complete CV and a cover letter. Only candidates shortlisted will be contacted.
