Welcome to the Group!

The Environmental Biostatistics and Epidemiology Group (EBEG) is aimed at promoting education and research at the interface between statistical methods and social and environmental epidemiology. EBEG comprises roughly 20 statisticians, epidemiologists, environmental and behavioral scientists [see photo] who meet weekly to promote quantitative methods and analyses to address environmental questions.

The group began as a result of the National Morbidity and Mortality Air Pollution Study (NMMAPS) but now has several projects including the development of: 1) new methods in environmental biostatistics (multi-level models, time series methods, imputation of missing data, ecological bias, misaligned data, measurement error, etc.); 2) computationally efficient algorithms for combining information across nationally-representative health surveys; 3) and data analyses of complex data bases to address important epidemiological questions.


Meetings are currently scheduled for every Monday starting from 1:00 PM - 2:30 PM EST in W2029.
