Associate Professor of Statistics & Graduate Studies Chair (Biostatistics PhD)
Faculty

I am interested in developing and evaluating methods to assess the effectiveness and safety of health care interventions. My primary area of expertise is research synthesis, or meta-analysis. Although research synthesis can be used to dramatically reduce the cost of important discoveries, it is also the only practical way to answer some system-wide questions or empirically evaluate interventions for diverse and fragile populations. In this context, I also work to develop methods to evaluate study generalizability, synthesize data collected with randomized and observational designs, and assess treatment effects on rare event outcomes. These latter lines of work incorporate ideas originally developed for survey sampling, missing data, and causal analysis, which are additional areas that interest me.



Eloise (Elly) Kaizar joined the statistics faculty in 2006. She currently serves as Chair of the Graduate Studies Committee for the Interdisciplinary PhD Program in Biostatistics at Ohio State University. She works to advance the profession and increase the quality of statistical applications in medicine through activities such as chairing the Gertrude M. Cox scholarship committee and serving as a statistical advisor for the journal PLOS ONE. Her research has been funded by the NIH, NSF, PCORI, other federal agencies, and corporate collaboration.
