Modeling, estimation, prediction and testing in hierarchical designs using nonparametric methods: rank-based theory, rank-based statistical modeling of hierarchical designs, specifically nested designs.
Also, I am seeking any collaboration in projects and grants, and in applied data analysis in social, behavioral and educational research as a statistician.
