Hana LeeAssistant Professor of Biostatistics (Research)
I am a Research Assistant Professor in the Department of Biostatistics at the Brown University School of Public Health. I received my Master and PhD in Biostatistics from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Before I came to the US, I studied Statistics at Seoul National University in South Korea.

I am primarily interested in problems relating to the analysis of observational/survival data, causal inference, and clinical research on AIDS therapies. My current research focus are developing statistical methods for biomedical survival data with various sampling designs on the basis of causal inference framework, methods for analysis of survival data with incomplete covariate measurements, and methods for identifying prognostic factors for the Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) related problems.
My primary research interests focus on problems relating to the analysis of survival data, causal inference, and clinical research on AIDS therapies. Long-term biomedical studies are often conducted as observational because randomized experiments are sometimes unethical, unfeasible, or simply too lengthy for timely decisions. Unlike randomized clinical trials, observational studies to assess the effect of a treatment (or, other clinical variables of interest such as policy or other intervention) may entail confounding effect of covariates, that is, covariates predict the treatment assignment. I aim to develop statistical methods that can appropriately adjust the confounding effect from prognostic factor(s) to the treatment assignment in observational studies so that investigators can avoid misleading results, and more importantly, can obtain meaningful findings which can further to guide the design of future randomized trials, health policy, and other clinical decisions. Also, I became more interested in cost and effort saving designs with a little loss of efficiency as modern clinical trials desire to acquire extensive covariate information from study participants. A common thread in my research lies on these motivations.
