Current Research Interests

Sammi primarily collaborates with researchers in the Neurosurgery and Bone Marrow Transplant services on retrospective and prospective studies. She is also part of the Statistical Coordinating Center for AACR Project GENIE BPC and is helping to develop the genieBPC R package. Sammi’s research interests include using survival and competing risks analyses to answer questions related to patient outcomes, along with exploring the biases inherent to observational clinico-genomic datasets. Aside from her analytic projects, Sammi is a member of the Bridge to Biostats committee.
