Kristin A. Linn, PhD

Assistant Professor of Biostatistics

Dr. Linn's research program spans two broad areas: statistical methods for high-dimensional medical imaging data and sequentially randomized clinical trials. As a co-investigator, she provides biostatistical leadership on projects in psychiatry, radiology, neurology, cardiovascular health, and multi-morbidity.

Dr. Linn works to improve understanding of neurological diseases by developing imaging-based biomarkers for disease diagnosis and treatment response. She is interested in extracting meaningful features from images that enhance diagnostic power and promote biological interpretability. She is actively working on statistical frameworks for image processing and generalizing causal inference approaches to address confounding in imaging pattern analyses. 

Dr. Linn also contributes to the design and analysis of sequentially randomized trials focusing on health incentives, behavioral economics, and the management of chronic illnesses. She is particularly interested in estimating individualized dynamic interventions that improve long-term patient outcomes.

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
