My research interests in statistical theory span many general areas: statistical inference, multivariate statistics, probability inequalities, categorical data analysis, pharmaceutical statistics and multiple testing. I worked for my Ph.D. in the area of multivariate statistical inference with missing data. Later I became interested in inequalities which gradually evolved into research in other areas. In particular, I established power properties of multivariate tests, developed confidence regions in time series, provided meaningful models for bivariate survival data and ordinal contingency tables. I have published several papers on multivariate estimation including some involving shrinkage methodology. I did research on statistical inferences that arise in drug development process. These include testing of hypotheses in analysis of combination drugs and bioequivalence studies, estimation of parameters under order restrictions. In addition, I have worked on problems involving order statistics from dependent random variables. Recently, my research is focused on high-dimensional multiple inference.
