Dr. Elliott s research interests include the design and analysis of sample surveys, U.S. Census undercount, and missing and latent variable data structures with applications to causal estimation and modeling. Recently he has explored potential outcome models to estimate causal effects in a variety of diverse settings, including longitudinal clinical trials and toxicology studies.
