Dr. Ni’s main research interests are in the individualized treatment regimen estimation with survival outcomes. He is also interested in regularized variable selection and causal inference under two-stage sampling designs with survival outcome. He collaborates with faculties from multiple colleges at OSU and Nationwide Children's Hospital on the design and analysis of various observational studies and clinical trials.
Causal inference with survival outcomes; Individualized treatment regimen estimation with survival outcomes; High-dimensional variable selection with survival outcomes; High-dimensional variable selection with measurement error; Two-stage sampling designs.
