Rebecca A. Hubbard, PhD

Associate Professor of Biostatistics

Dr. Hubbard's research focuses on development and application of statistical methodology for studies that use observational data from clinical medical practice. This work encompasses evaluation of screening and diagnostic test performance, methods for comparative-effectiveness studies, and health-services research. A wealth of data on healthcare utilization, performance and outcomes are available from electronic health records. However the complex observation scheme that gives rise to these data necessitates careful study design and analysis to ensure that inference is valid. Dr. Hubbard’s methodological research emphasizes development of statistical tools for such inference and has been applied to studies of cancer screening, aging and dementia, pharmacoepidemiology, women’s health and behavioral health.

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
