As the CIDA Director, Nichole’s goal 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.

Background:  Associate Professor of Biostatistics and Informatics at the Colorado School of Public Health. Over 15 years of experience as a collaborative biostatistician. Co-directed a General Clinical Research Center biostatistics core and has been a consulting faculty member in the CIDA. A leader in statistical approaches for analyzing hormone data and an expert in Bayesian methods.

Miranda Kroehl, PhD

As the CIDA Assistant Director, Miranda meets with investigators to determine the scope of the project, estimate the associated costs, and match a biostatistician to the project.

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

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