Michelle Elana Ross, PhD
Assistant Professor of Biostatistics
Dr. Ross's statistical research interests include Bayesian statistics, spatial statistics, epidemiological methods and small-area estimation. She has developed a Bayesian approach to the analysis of two-phase studies with binary outcomes and categorical covariates. In addition, she has pursued methodological research on an approach to the analysis of large observational data sets, inspired by randomized clinical trials, in the setting of rare outcomes and rare exposures. Her collaborative research is rich and diverse; it includes a large project that employs a national network of pediatric practices that use electronic health records to evaluate medication safety and efficacy in children, and several projects that study how geography affects health and access to healthcare services.
