Sy Han (Steven) Chiou is a newly hired postdoctoral research fellow working with Dr. Rebecca Betensky on collaborative projects in neurology and other medical areas. Steven received his PhD in statistics from University of Connecticut in 2013 under the supervision of Dr. Sangwook Kang and Dr. Jun Yan. Prior to joining the Harvard Biostatistics team, Steven taught at the University of Minnesota at Duluth for two years. While there, he continued his research in methodological developments and applications in survival analysis. Although his primary area of research is survival analysis, his research interests also include the following areas: case-cohort studies, missing data techniques, statistical computing, and public health applications.
When Steven is not doing research, he tries to maintain an active lifestyle; he enjoys all kinds of outdoor activities including basketball, biking, softball, surfing, snowboarding, etc. Although sad that summer is almost over, Steven is very excited to explore New England ski resorts!
