Jason A. Roy, PhD

Associate Professor of Biostatistics

Dr Roy's current methodological research interests broadly center on developing Bayesian non-parametric methods for causal inference. This includes methods for causal mediation, treatment-effect heterogeneity, and optimal treatment strategies. He is also interested in developing scalable algorithms for big data in this space. His methodological research is largely motivated by challenges that come from analyzing data from large healthcare databases. Another area of interest is developing interactive graphical methods that capture uncertainty in clustering algorithms for dense data. His primary collaborations are in pharmacoepidemiology and chronic kidney disease.

Dr. Roy is co-director of the Center for Causal Inference. He won the 2002 David P. Byar Young Investigator Award, ASA Biometrics Section. He is currently associate editor of Biometrics, Journal of the American Statistical Association (Applicaitons and Case Studies), Journal of the Royal Statistical Society Series C, Observational Studies, and Pharmacoepidemiology & Drug Safety.

About Us

To understand health and disease today, we need new thinking and novel science —the kind  we create when multiple disciplines work together from the ground up. That is why this department has put forward a bold vision in population-health science: a single academic home for biostatistics, epidemiology and informatics. MORE
