Sherri Rose is currently an NSF Mathematical Sciences Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the Department of Biostatistics at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health working with Michael Rosenblum. She will be joining the faculty at Harvard Medical School as an Assistant Professor of Biostatistics in the Department of Health Care Policy this coming Fall. In 2011, Sherri received her Ph.D. in Biostatistics from the University of California, Berkeley under the mentorship of Mark van der Laan, with whom she recently coauthored the book Targeted Learning: Causal Inference for Observational and Experimental Data for the Springer Series in Statistics. Broadly, her research interests include semiparametric estimation in causal inference and machine learning for risk prediction. Her postdoctoral work focuses on longitudinal observational data and dynamic treatment regimes. It has been recognized with a Johns Hopkins Delta Omega Scholarship and a Young Investigator Award from the International Conference on Advances in Interdisciplinary Statistics and Combinatorics.
Sherri's doctoral thesis developed double robust methodology for biased sampling designs, specifically case-control studies. She was honored with the Evelyn Fix Memorial Prize, which is awarded to the Ph.D. student on the Berkeley campus showing the greatest promise in statistical research with preference for applications to biology and problems of health, and the Chin-Long Chiang Biostatistics Student of the Year Award. Her graduate work was also recognized by the American Statistical Association with the Gertrude M. Cox Scholarship in Statistics, Statistics in Epidemiology Young Investigator Award, and Statistics in Epidemiology Graduate Student Travel Award. Additionally, Sherri received a U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Scholarship for Disadvantaged Students each year of her Ph.D. program.
In 2005, Sherri graduated from The George Washington University with her B.S. in Statistics. She was the recipient of GW's Recent Alumni Achievement Award in 2011.
