About me

Jane has a background in epidemiology and public health.

Research description

I've been working as a biostatistician in the Division of Biostatistics since 2020. As a statistician, I'm knowledgeable about managing data and using different statistical models. I can use several techniques like multistage biosystems, latent class models, survival models, generalized estimating equations, and marginal structural models. I program in Stata software.

I'm also an epidemiologist, which means I can use observational databases to measure relavant factors, look for connections between them, and draw conclusions about different groups of people. Together, my skills as a biostatistician and epidemiologist help me contribute to research in public health.
