Cavan S. Reilly
Division of Biostatistics
I received a Ph.D. (2000) and an M.S. (1997) from the Department of
Statistics at Columbia University, an M.A. in Economics at the New
School for Social Research (1995) and a B.S. (1993) in Sociology from
the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities. In the past I have focused on
longitudinal analysis for high dimensional data and
low level analysis of -omics data, mostly from a Bayesian perspective.
Currently most of my work is in clinical trials and observational studies in infectious
disease, with emphases on Ebola and HIV/AIDS.
