Biostatistics

HackEbola, a recent weekend-long hackathon at UMass Amherst, brought together attendees from campus and across Western Massachusetts to examine data related to the Ebola outbreak in West Africa.

Assistant Professor of Biostatistics Nicholas Reich recently was invited to participate in a workshop run by the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) entitled “Integrating Prediction and Forecasting Models for Decision-Making: Dengue Epidemic Prediction.”
