Ian Crandell

Ian Crandell, Ph.D. is a Research Scientist in the Center for Biostatistics and Health Data Science. His research interests include the computational aspects of statistical inference, including high performance computing and parallelization, reproducibility and collaborative coding practice, and data visualization. In his thesis he applied semi-parametric Bayesian models to the problem of error detection and correction in correlated sensor systems. Since then, he has worked on predictive modeling for social problems at the Biocomplexity Institute, analysis of criminal networks, and the application of text mining tools to the classification of toxic protein sequences. He has extensive experience in collaboration from his time working with the Laboratory of Interdisciplinary Statistical Analysis, where he served as a lead collaborator as well as the statistical ambassador to Nigeria.
