Dr. Tang was trained in Mathematics and Mathematical Statistics. His early mathematical statistical work in a medical environment was in development of clinical trial methodology, specifically dealing with issues of multiple endpoints and sequential analyses, and the integration of the two into a unified framework. His more recent work has mostly been to provide statistical support to various mental health care research projects. Some ensuing statistical issues are to find less rigid ways to enable analyses of many outcome variables and quasi-random experiments that are typical in health care research. Newer statistical approaches, such as CART, that do not depend on a traditional estimation and hypothesis testing paradigm are also of interest. Additional longstanding statistical interests are hierarchical modeling and nonlinear time response curve.
