Cory Zigler Promoted to Associate Professor

The Department is delighted to report that Cory Zigler has been promoted to Associate Professor of Biostatistics, effectively May 1, 2018.

Cory has made central contributions in the fields of Bayesian statistics, causal inference, comparative effectiveness research, and environmental health data science. Through this work, Cory has established a national and international reputation in these fields, and has had a significant impact on the way environmental regulators interpret the evidence of causality in data on the effectiveness of clean air regulations in the environmental health sciences.

He has also proven to be a strong teacher and mentor to students and postdoctoral fellows in Biostatistics and the Chan School more generally.
In addition, he has been very active in the field, serving as an Associate Editor for Biostatistics and on multiple national committees, including organizing committees for the International Conference for Health Policy Statistics and the New England Statistics Symposium, the ENAR Regional Advisory Board, and as Program Chair for the ASA Health Policy Statistics Section.

We congratulate Cory and thank him for all of his impressive contributions to our Department, School, and profession.
