Keumhee Carriere Chough is Professor of Statistics in the Department of Mathematical and Statistical Sciences at the University of Alberta. After completing her BSc in Agriculture from Seoul National University, in Seoul, Korea, she earned her MSc from the University of Manitoba, and her PhD in Statistics from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 1989. Since 1996, she has been with the Department of Mathematical and Statistical Sciences, University of Alberta, after stints as Assistant Professor at the University of Iowa (1990-1992) and University of Manitoba (1992-1996). She was also the Director of the Statistics Consulting Center at the University of Iowa (1990-1992). Her research interests include design and analysis for repeated measures data, missing data methods, high dimensional data analysis methods, multivariate methods, designs for clinical trials, item response data, variable selection methods, and survival analysis. As well, she specializes in such biostatistical methods as small area variation analysis techniques with applications to health care utilization. She has been a Health Scient
