Meg Short

Postdoctoral Research Fellow



Broadly, I am interested in statistical methods for high-dimensional 'omics data and their applications in epidemiology. I have worked in the disease areas of cardiovascular disease, Alzheimer's and dementia, and in the methodological areas of the microbiome, proteomics, clustered binary data, and network analysis. I am currently working on methods to facilitate accurate power and sample size calculations for microbiome epidemiology studies, and on ways to resolve 16S and metagenomic quantification of microbial taxa.
