Dr. Bandeen-Roche’s research focuses on the development, implementation and application of models for problems, including underlying or unobservable processes of interest. Generally considered multivariate, latent-variable regression modeling, the area includes mixture models, measurement-error models and random-effects models.
Her most recent work has largely focused on applying underlying-variable methods in epidemiologic and psychosocial research. Her other areas of statistical research include the study of classification and variance structure and multivariate survival analysis—particularly in gerontology—and she has taken part in population research on aging for more than a decade. She also has collaborated extensively in ophthalmology and neurology research.
