ryan-andrewsRyan M. Andrews

Year entered: 2013

Previous degrees:
SB, Brain and Cognitive Sciences; Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT)

Advisor: Michelle C. Carlson, PhD

Research interests: My interests fall into two complementary areas. First, I am interested in how technology can be used in epidemiological studies to improve data quality and precision. Second, I am interested in the proper use and the advancement of statistical tools applicable to problems commonly seen in observational studies, such as misclassification, measurement error, or confounding. I currently pursue both interests in the context of cognitive aging and dementia prevention.
