Stavroula A. Chrysanthopoulou, PhD, is an Assistant Professor and Director of the Master’s Program in the Department of Biostatistics at Brown University School of Public Health. She is also the Director of the Statistical Consulting Unit at the Center for Statistical Sciences at Brown SPH, and a Core Faculty Member of the Biostatistics Core (Core G) of the Providence-Boston Center for AIDS Research (CFAR). Dr Chrysanthopoulou research interests focus on statistical methods for the development of complex predictive modeling, including calibration, validation and assessment of the predictive accuracy. She is exploring advanced empirical and Bayesian approaches for the development of complex simulation models and high performance computing and parallel processes for improving the efficiency of the underlying algorithms. She currently has multiple collaborations on projects for the development of simulation models used in medical decision making, including, microsimulation models for lung cancer (MILC) and dementia, the RESPOND cohort-based model for Opioid Use Disorder (OUD), and agent-based models for COVID-19, HIV, and other infectious diseases. Dr. Chrysanthopoulou has also extensive experience with mentoring students and teaching at Graduate level programs of Biostatistics, with a variety of statistical courses including survival, longitudinal, multilevel, and multivariate data analysis. Prior to joining the Department of Biostatistics at Brown University, Stavroula received her BSc in Statistics from Athens University of Economic and Business, ScM in Biostatistics from University of Athens, and PhD in Biostatistics from Brown University. She also worked for three years in the Department of Quantitative Health Sciences at UMASS Medical School, where she is currently an Adjunct Professor of Biostatistics.
