Dr. Li received her Ph.D. in 2005. Her research interests are in the areas of longitudinal analysis, missing data in longitudinal studies, and joint modeling of longitudinal and time-to-event data. She has extensive statistical consulting and collaborative experience with investigators in many areas of biomedical research.
