A converge of these interests also leads to the development of appropriate methodologies to more adequately explore the potentials of intensive longitudinal data for answering scientific questions. He is also involved in collaborative studies at the UNC Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center, working with physicians and researchers on clinical studies.
