CRNS Research Assistants, Summer 2014
--Tiffany is from Park City, Utah. She completed her undergrad study at the University of New Mexico, where she skied at the NCAA level; skiing and rock-climbing continue to be among her primary hobbies, and she enjoys brewing beer, as well. At present, Tiffany is a first-year MPH student, focusing on Applied Biostatistics. Subsequently, her appreciation of stats/methodology will propel her to a PhD in Health Informatics, and ultimately, that degree will usher in a long life in academics/public health, where she will implement and adapt empirically supported treatments in community-based settings.
Alex Schneider--Alex is Denver-born, Denver-raised, CU Boulder-educated, and AMC-situated--she is en route to getting her MPH with a focus on Applied Biostatistics. Quantitative research has always come naturally to Alex; four years of doing research at the VA has further honed her skills. Why Applied Biostatistics? Because the predictability of data reassures her. And the way she makes data act predictably will reassure everyone who meets her in the CRNS. One more thing: "Toaster." This is the name of Alex's dog.
Chanmi Lee--Chanmi attended the finest university in Korea, and now, she's here at CU, attending the finest university in the United States. She is a remarkably bright and hard-working person. Chanmi is not a CRNS RA, but if you go to the CRNS, there's, like, a 75% chance you'll see her there, so please consider this to be a brief introduction.
