  • I am a statistician by training with over 20 years of experience in the application of methods to epidemiology, public health, laboratory sciences and medicine. In particular, I have developed novel statistical approaches to address problems that arise in obesity and cardiovascular disease epidemiology. I have spent the early years of my career to describing and understanding racial/ethnic health disparities by studying not only populations in the US, but other countries, such as Nigeria, Ghana, Jamaica, Mexico, and Spain. Recently, I have expanded existing methods to model the association between 25-Hydroxyvitamin D (25[OH]D) and Parathyroid Hormone (PTH). Furthermore, I am using data from the NHANES III follow up study to estimate 25[OH]D levels of lowest mortality using state-of-the art statistical techniques. 25[OH]D of minimum mortality and maximal PTH suppression could be coupled to establish optimal 25[OH]D values at the population level. I have been a member of the IOM Committee to Review Dietary Reference Intakes for Vitamin D and Calcium. I have been the Director of Loyola University Chicago’s Biostatistics Core, which serves the entire Stritch School of Medicine community. In addition, I was a co-investigator in an R01 project – Modeling the Epidemiologic Transition Study (METS), which aims at assessing associations between the hormones and latitude, diet, physical activity, adiposity, blood pressure and biochemical risk factors for cardiovascular disease in 5 populations of African descent. Currently, I am the PI of the ongoing NIDDK funded RO1, Vitamin D Ancillary (VIDA) Study, aimed at describing the distributions 25[OH]D in 5 populations of African origin and at investigating the associations with cardiovascular disease risk factors. I have recently joined the Hispanic Community Health Study/Study of Latinos (HCHS/SOL) study as a co-investigator. I am currently working on number of manuscripts in collaborations with senior and junior investigators associated with the HCHS/SOL study, the VIDA study and the VA Information Resource Center (VIReC) program. My role includes providing statistical support and guidance/mentorship to junior investigators. I am an active member and collaborator of the NIH-sponsored Vitamin D Standardization Program (VDSP), an international effort that initiated in 2010 to standardize the measurement of 25-Hydroxyvitamin D and related metabolites. Also, I collaborate with the ODIN project, an European Union-funded study to characterize vitamin D deficiency in Europe using standardization methods developed by VDSP. I am currently member of the board of directors of the Vitamin D External Quality Assessment Scheme (DEQAS), whose main objective is to ensure the analytical reliability of measurement of 24(OH)D and 1,25(OH)D. DEQAS participants more than 1,200 laboratories from 54 countries. DEQAS is based in the United Kingdom.
