- ASSISTANT PROFESSOR | Population Health Science and Policy
Research Topics:Biostatistics, Environmental Health, Epidemiology, Pediatrics, Psychiatry, Public Health
Shelley H. Liu is an Assistant Professor in the Center for Biostatistics, Department of Population Health Science and Policy. Dr. Liu’s primary research interests are in longitudinal data analysis, Bayesian analysis, latent class analysis, environmental epidemiology and children’s health. Dr. Liu received her BA from Northwestern University in 2011, and her PhD in Biostatistics from Harvard University in 2016. During her doctoral training, she developed statistical methods for environmental health research. These projects included developing methods for estimating the health effects associated with exposure mixtures, and identifying critical time windows of vulnerability to exposures. For her dissertation research, she received a Distinguished Student Paper Award from the International Biometric Society - Eastern North America Region. She also received two National Science Foundation EAPSI awards to conduct research in Australia and China. Through these awards, she developed computationally efficient methods to analyze large longitudinal cohort data.
