Stavroula Chrysanthopoulou, PhD is an Assistant Professor of Biostatistics. The focus of her research interests is in the area of microsimulation modeling (MSM). She has developed the MIcrosimulation Lung Cancer (MILC) model, a streamlined MSM of the natural history of lung cancer, and published a package for the implementation of the MILC model in the R open-source statistical software. Her research interests span the fields of complex predictive models applied in medical decision making, calibration and predictive accuracy methods, causal inference, missing data, and high performance computing techniques. Dr Chrysanthopoulou has also extensive teaching experience with various graduate-level courses in Biostatistics, including survival and longitudinal data analysis, generalized linear models, and simulation studies.
Dr Chrysanthopoulou received her PhD from Brown University, a BA in Statistics from Athens University of Economics and Business. Prior to joining the Department of Biostatistics at Brown, she was an Instructor of Biostatistics in the Department of Quantitative Health Sciences at the University of Massachusetts Medical School.
