Regression modelling of correlated data, particularly discrete data:
Clinical trials: ethical and statistical issues in design, conduct and analysis.
Semiparametric inference and connections to design-based inference
Statistical computing: tools for programming, data analysis and teaching.
Foundations: transitivity of tests, decision-theoretic constructions of useful frequentist estimators.
Genomics: design and analysis of large-scale association studies.
