Research Overview

Brian Egleston, PhD received his doctorate in biostatistics from the Johns Hopkins University. He also has a Master of Public Policy from the University of Chicago.  His interests include the development of methodology for causal inference, accounting for missing data, and investigating the effects of survey response fatigue. Many of his collaborative analyses have involved the application of state of the art approaches including hierarchical Bayesian, propensity score, competing risk, cost effectiveness, and latent variable methods.
