Kerrie Nelson is a Research Associate Professor in the Department of Biostatistics at Boston University. She is from New Zealand originally, and after her undergraduate studies at the University of Auckland, worked as a Research Fellow in Christchurch, New Zealand. She completed her PhD in Statistics at the University of Washington where her research focused on correlated data and generalized linear mixed models. She currently spends her time on both methodological research and applied projects focusing on developing statistical methods for assessing agreement in screening and diagnostic tests and has worked in a collaborative role with several groups at Boston Medical Center including Emergency Medicine, Diabetes and Nutrition, and Women's Health. She often enjoys teaching BS704 Introduction to Biostatistics.
