George Knafl, PhD

Emeritus Professor

My research involves the development of new statistical methods and the application of those new methods together with existing methods to the analysis of health science data. My research interests include adaptive methods for statistical model selection, modeling and analysis of electronic monitoring data, modeling and analysis of family data, statistical evaluation of survey instruments, and applications of statistics to nursing research. I am currently principal investigator on the NIMH-funded project Adaptive Modeling of Longitudinal Health Outcomes for Multicenter AIDS Cohort Study (MACS) Participants (Grant # R03 MH086132). This project involves extending adaptive nonparametric classification methods I have developed to handle longitudinal data.   I’m also involved with the Family Management Measure (FaMM) project.
