I have more than 10 years of applied research experience in biostatistics, research design, methodology, and outcomes measurement. In addition, I have contributed to the implementation of numerous patient-oriented research projects involving a varied team of collaborators. I hold a Masters in Public Health with a Biostatistics major from the University of Illinois at Chicago. My research focus is the statistical analysis of health data. I have extensive experience managing research data in SAS, STATA, SPSS, ACCESS, R, Qualtrics, REDCap and Excel, including database design, data queries, data cleaning, and statistical analysis.
