Shira I. Dunsiger Assistant Professor of Behavioral and Social Sciences (Research)

My research focus is on developing sophisticated statistical methodology for analyzing data from behavioral medicine, including smoking cessation, physical activity, mood, depression and adherence outcomes. My broad research interests include statistical mediation, causal inference, missing data mechanisms and pattern detection.
