Prasad Patil, PhD
Assistant Professor
Boston University School of Public Health

PhD, Johns Hopkins University
BA, New York University

Dr. Prasad Patil studies machine learning applications in public health and the development of statistical methods focused on reproducibility and replicability. Dr. Patil has specific interest in techniques for combining data from and/or models trained in multiple studies to improve generalizbility of predictive models. Some of his application areas include: gene signatures for assessing Tuberculosis stage, multi-site modeling of air pollution spikes caused by airplane activity, opioid overdose risk modeling in incarcerated populations, longitudinal modleing of well-being indicies, and survey weight estimation for convenience samples of vulnerable/underrepresented populations.

Dr. Patil received his PhD in Biostatistics from the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health and completed a postdoctoral research fellowship at the Harvard Chan School of Public Health Department of Biostatistics/Dana-Farber Cancer Institute Department of Data Science.
