 Research Expertise & Professional Interests
Michael LaValley, PhD. is a Professor of Biostatistics at the Boston University School of Public Health, where he teaches courses on logistic regression, survival analysis and meta-analysis. Mike’s research efforts are focused on meta-analysis of study results, analysis of ordered categorical data, survival analysis, clinical trials, and outcome assessment in arthritis studies. He has also served as a Peace Corps Volunteer math and science teacher in Nepal in the late 1980s. He has a BA in Mathematics from American International College, a MA in Mathematics from Ohio State University, and a Ph.D. in Statistics from Penn State University. He joined the faculty at Boston University after completing a postdoctoral fellowship in Biostatistics at the Harvard School of Public Health.

Mike also serves as the Research Direction for the BU Center for Enhancing Activity and Participation among Persons with Arthritis (ENACT) and is an Associate Editor for the journal Arthritis Care & Research.
