Leadership style

Dr. Jiang has provided leadership in statistical consulting service, served on a variety of committees, chaired research rounds and roundtable discussions, and played an active role in service and administrative work. As an academic member, these services have been undertaken to advance research, enhance a student research environment, improve our graduate program, and improve the health and health services of population in the province, nationally and internationally.

Teaching philosophy

A good mentor helps trainees find their own strengths rather than turning them into a clone of the mentor. This involves caring about and respecting their personal development. This also involves providing space and independence to carry out their own interests of research and giving constructive feedback on a regular basis.

Research summary

Dr. Jiang’s research focus is to develop biostatistics methods and promote the use of advanced statistical methods for health service research and program evaluation. His research interests include:

(1) longitudinal data analysis and multilevel models;

(2) person-oriented statistical approaches (e. g., latent class analysis and growth mixture models);

(3) structural equation models;

(4) clinical trial design and impact evaluation.

Dr. Jiang has made significant contribution to statistical methods for missing data and advanced statistical models for multilevel and longitudinal data.
