Rebecca Anthopolos

Assistant Professor, Department of Population Health

Bayesian methods, missing data, complex survey samples, electronic health records, longitudinal data analysis

I am an Assistant Professor in the Division of Biostatistics within the Department of Population Health at NYU Grossman School of Medicine. My methodological training is in Bayesian methods for modeling latent heterogeneity in complex survey samples and electronic health records (EHRs) accounting for missing data. Since joining the Department of Population Health in 2019, I have developed expertise in the analysis of randomized clinical trial data. I have particular interest in type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and social and environmental determinants of health.

I am keenly interested in developing and disseminating statistical methods for the rigorous analysis of electronic health record data. My R package EHRMiss that can be used for sensitivity analysis about missing data assumptions in EHR data analysis is available at
