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.

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
