Ali Chambers (maiden name Biercevicz) serves as a Research Scientist for the Rhode Island Hospital Lifespan Biostatistics Core. As part of her role with the Biostatistics Core, she offers methods, study design, and statistical support for collaborating researchers and mentoring support for the Rhode Island Hospital/Brown University resident training program. She also teaches clinical database management and design through REDCap for Rhode Island Hospital and Care New England as part of the Advanced CTR.
In addition to her work with the Biostatistics Core, Ali is a Ph.D. level research engineer who has collaborated with surgeons, engineers and scientists across disciplines to develop methodology addressing clinical research questions relevant to the field of Orthopaedics. Her collaborative research has covered many topics including biomechanics, ASTM medical device testing, medical imaging diagnostics, clinical research, and animal model work. She has presented her research at numerous national conferences and in peer-reviewed journals. She attained a B.S. in biomedical engineering from the University of Connecticut and a doctorate from Brown University, where her thesis work focused on translational imaging diagnostics specific to Orthopaedic biomechanics applications.
