Research Expertise & Professional Interests Laura Forsberg White, PhD, is an Associate Professor of Biostatistics at Boston University. She is interested in developing statistical tools to better understand the transmission dynamics and epidemiology of infectious diseases and substance use disorders. She has developed methods to estimate transmission parameters. Her work involves the development of novel methodologies for the detection of disease outbreaks, as well as the application statistical methods for public health surveillance systems, including spatial statistics and time series. Dr White's work includes applications and collaborations in Tuberculosis, Hepatitis C, HIV, and substance use disorders. She works with several large international studies focused on Tuberculosis and is part of the Boston Providence Center for AIDS Research. She leads her own research group focused on developing statistical methods to better understand TB transmission and burden, as well as Covid-19 transmission dynamics. At SPH, she teaches Public Health Surveillance: A Methods Based Approach (BS 728).
