John Spivack, PhD
- ASSISTANT PROFESSOR | Environmental Medicine & Public Health
I am a recent graduate of a Columbia’s Biostatistics Ph.D. program with a specialization in novel designs for clinical trials. I plan to pursue methods-oriented research, emphasizing early phase drug and device development.
Other topics that appeal to me are designed observational studies and causal inference.Previous applied projects of mine have been in Orthopedics, Coagulopathy, and Obesity.
