PhD Epidemiology Alumni

Changshuai Wei, PhD Epidemiology 2014

cweiMy current job title is Assistant Professor of Biostatistics, at the University of North Texas Health Science Center in Fort Worth, Texas and what I like most in academia is the freedom to pursue research topics that I’m interested in.

The quantitative-focus and research-focus aspects of the Epidemiology/Biostatistics program at MSU helped me get this job. The program provided a wide choiceof biostats classes which I think is very unique. I benefit a lot from those biostatistics classes since my research area is statistical genetics and genetic epidemiology. The methodological training such as causal inference and research methods in epi helped me developed a deep understanding in design and methods used in population based study. The Epi training in different specific chronic diseases also helped a lot when I communicate with collaborators.
