Welcome to my home page. I have a joint appointment in the Department of Statistics at Stanford University, and the Division of Biostatistics of the Health, Research and Policy Department in the Stanford School of Medicine.

I have been on the faculty at Stanford since August, 1994. Before that I was a member of the technical staff at AT&T Bell Laboratories, Murray Hill, New Jersey, where I worked for 9 years. For more details, click on the link to my biography.
