Dr. Raman’s research is motivated by real-world problems that need to be addressed with suitable statistical methods. She serves as a statistical collaborator for the Tennessee Department of Children’s Services, Vanderbilt Center for Critical Illness, Brain Dysfunction and Survivorship, and CDC's Emerging Infections Program, and she is a co-I on multiple NIH-funded studies. Her methodological research is mostly associated with challenges encountered in her collaborative work and includes health disparity measures, provider profiling, area under the time curve, and methods to address survivor/attrition bias.
