Jayandra Jung Himali, PhD, is an Assistant Professor of Neurology at Boston University School of Medicine, a Center Faculty Member of the Framingham Heart Study (FHS), and an Assistant Professor of Biostatistics at the Boston University School of Public Health. He has been engaged in collaborative public health research and teaching for over a decade. As a senior Biostatistician at the Neurology core of FHS, his research efforts are focused on the interrelated areas of: (1) the epidemiology of dementia and Alzheimer’s disease (AD) and relating traditional and novel biomarkers to the risk of dementia and AD; (2) the epidemiology of stroke and vascular cognitive impairment, risk of cognitive decline and dementia following stroke; (3) understanding vascular contributions to cognitive impairment and dementia including AD; and (4) investigating the role of modifiable risk factors: sleep, diet, physical activity, and depression on the incidence of dementia, cognitive decline and MRI-defined brain aging. His research is also focused on outcome assessment in Epilepsy, Parkinson’s disease, and neuropathology. He has received the Nepal Bidhya Bhusan Class ‘A’ Medal from the government of Nepal for highest academic achievement in doctoral studies. He is a member of associations such as the American Statistical Association (ASA), the Royal Statistical Society, the Alzheimer’s Association International Society to Advance Alzheimer’s Research and Treatment (ISTAART), and American Heart Association.
