Paul Rathouz, Ph.D., is the founding director of the Biomedical Data Science Hub and a professor in the Department of Population Health. The Biomedical Data Science Hub is intended as a collaborative resource for data science activity, including both clinical and population health biostatistics and bioinformatics, among other quantitative areas. Past areas of methodological research include estimating functions, errors in regression covariates, missing data in highly stratified studies, applied health econometrics and behavior genetics (especially twin studies). Rathouz has active research in the areas of generalized linear models; the analysis of longitudinal, multivariate or clustered data; outcome dependent sampling and other sampling problems related to missing data; and cluster randomized trials.
