Amy H. Herring
Sara & Charles Ayres Distinguished Professor of Statistical Science, Global Health, Biostatistics, and Bioinformatics, Duke University
Amy Herring's research interests include Bayesian methods, complex data structures (correlated data, data on different measurement scales), dimension reduction methods, and applications in health and medicine. New and current projects include investigation of health effects of exposures to mixtures of environmental contaminants (particularly in relation to child health and neurodevelopment), robustness of clustering methods (with applications in classifying complex behavioral profiles), general questions in reproductive and environmental epidemiology, and exploration of potential new subtypes of sepsis in sub-Saharan Africa. She is currently serving as president of the International Society for Bayesian Analysis and on the Board of the Directors of the International Biometric Society.
