Kristin A. Linn, PhD

Assistant Professor of Biostatistics

Dr. Linn's methodological research program spans two broad areas: statistical methods for neuroimaging data and sequentially randomized clinical trials. As a co-investigator, she provides biostatistical leadership on projects in behavioral health economics, dermatology, implementation science, and psychology. 

Dr. Linn has experience designing sequential multiple assignment randomized trials (SMARTs) in a number of research areas. She is particularly interested in using data from SMART designs to estimate personalized dynamic interventions that improve long-term outcomes for individuals. 

Dr. Linn is actively working on statistical frameworks for harmonizing imaging data from multi-site studies and estimating spatially varying patterns of multimodal image associations. She is also interested in adapting methods from causal inference to address confounding in analyses of high-dimensional imaging data.

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. LEARN MORE ABOUT US
