Nichole CarlsonNichole E Carlson, PhD

Associate Professor of Biostatistics and Informatics at the Colorado School of Public Health. Dr. Carlson has over 15 years experience as a collaborative biostatistician. Prior to becoming the director, she co-directed a General Clinical Research Center biostatistics core and has been a consulting faculty member in the CBC. She is a leader in statistical approaches for analyzing hormone data and an expert in Bayesian methods. She has NIH funding for developing Bayesian methods for analyzing pulsatile hormones and is the director of the Biostatistics, Epidemiology, and Research Design Core of the Colorado Clinical and Translational Science Institute. She received her doctorate in Biostatistics from the University of Michigan.

Her goal as CBC director is to create a welcoming collaborative research environment that results in new scientific partnerships through significant biostatistics contributions. Her philosophy is that biostatistics is a pillar of sound research and should be easily accessible to all AMC researchers.

Assistant Director
Miranda KroehlMiranda Kroehl, PhD

Miranda earned both her MS and PhD in Biostatistics from the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus. Miranda has several years of experience analyzing large cohort studies using survival and longitudinal analyses to identify risk factors associated with the development of disease. Her prior research includes the application of restricted cubic spline functions to identify and model time-varying hazard ratios in survival models, and the evaluation of statistical tests for indirect effects with binary outcome variables.

Expertise: Microbiome and high-dimensional research, and the development of statistical methods for the identification of direct and indirect effects (e.g., mediation, causal modeling).

As Assistant Director of the CBC, Miranda meets with investigators and medical researchers to develop biostatistics Scopes of Work for their projects, as well as to estimate the costs associated with study design, power/sample size calculations, data analysis and/or manuscript preparation.

Project Manager
Glenda CrawfordGlenda Crawford, MA

Glenda is responsible for managing the CBC’s project management system and intranet site to improve project scheduling, tracking, and reporting, and provide a place for project documentation and team collaboration. Her goal is to establish good communication and working relationships with clients, strategic partners, and CBC biostatisticians to facilitate the project management process.

Glenda is a creative, detail-oriented individual that has years of experience designing and developing web solutions with a focus on usability and visual design, implementing process improvements, managing projects, and collaborating and consulting with stakeholders. She has completed an Information & Learning Technologies MA degree from the University of Colorado Denver and a BS degree in Wildlife Biology from Colorado State University. She has recently completed a certification in User Experience with a Specialty in Web Design.
