I am Professor of Biostatistics and Chairman of the Department of Biostatistics at Vanderbilt University School of Medicine, Nashville TN USA. I am Associate Editor of Statistics in Medicine, a member of the Faculty of 1000 Medicine, and a member of the policy advisory board for the Journal of Clinical Epidemiology. I am a Fellow of the American Statistical Association. I am author of Regression Modeling Strategies (Springer, 2001). My specialties are development and validation of predictive models, clinical trials, observational clinical research, cardiovascular research, technology evaluation, clinical epidemiology, medical diagnostic accuracy, biomarker research, pharmaceutical safety, Bayesian methods, quantifying predictive accuracy, missing data imputation, and statistical graphics and reporting. I am a long-time user of R. In August 2014 I was given the WJ Dixon Award for Excellence in Statistical Consulting by the American Statistical Association. Among many other things, Dr Dixon was the lead developer of the first general-purpose statistical software package, BMD.
