Serkalem Demissie, Ph.D., is Associate Professor in the Department of Biostatistics as well as a senior Biostatistician in the division of Population Health and Data Science at the Massachusetts Veterans Epidemiology Research and Information Center [MAVERIC] at the Boston VA hospital. Serkalem has collaborated extensively in the Framingham Heart Study in a variety of research projects for more than 15 years. Her research interests are in the application, evaluation, and development of statistical methods for genetic, genomic and epidemiologic studies, including methods for genome wide association studies (GWAS) and meta-analysis; methods for survival, correlated, and multivariate data; and modeling and clustering of temporal gene expression data.
