Senior Research Statistician

Dennis Wallace, PhD, is the principal investigator or co-principal investigator for statistical and data coordinating centers supporting research in women's and children's health and in infectious diseases. He specializes in the design and operation of clinical trials and the analysis of clinical trial data as well as data from environmental, epidemiological, and basic sciences studies. Dr. Wallace has provided statistical support and statistical leadership for clinical trials and epidemiologic studies of cardiovascular disease and stroke, clinical immunology, infectious diseases, substance abuse, developmental disabilities, geriatric medicine, sickle cell, neonatal care, women's health, and injury prevention. He has expertise in longitudinal and correlated data analysis and in linear and generalized linear models, with particular expertise in linear mixed models and the generalized estimating equation and nonlinear mixed-model extensions of generalized linear models. He also has expertise in clinical trial design with emphasis on complex power calculations and on the design of cluster-randomized trials.
