Dr. Jeon is interested in evaluating longitudinal change in multiple symptoms and identifying symptom cluster using longitudinal models and latent variable analysis. His research interests have extended to develop statistical methods of evaluating time-series data including, 1) statistical approaches for evaluating noise data to assess the associations between nighttime noise pollution and sleep disturbance in ICU, and 2) the application of survival curve models and Markov model for assessing sleep fragments and concordance between actigraphic and polysomnographic measurements of sleep and wake.
