The Statistical Core is under the leadership of Drs. DiRienzo and Yucel whose home academic department is Epidemiology and Biostatistics, School of Public Health. The main goal of this core is to form a quantitative working group to create research synergy between social scientists, health scientists, and biostatisticians. Activities undertaken by the Statistical Core are:

  1. Teaching activities; short courses on highly sought-after topics such as spatial statistics, causal inference, missing data, targeted learning or high-dimensional data analysis.
  2. Forum to discuss research ideas; CSDA-Biostatistics joint brown bag series.
  3. Joint research projects in statistical methodology that serve the CSDA mission.
