Andrea S. Foulkes, Sc.D. is an Associate Professor of Biostatistics at the University of Massachusetts School of Public Health and Health Sciences. Her research includes developing analytic methods for characterizing the relationships among high-dimensional molecular and cellular data and measures of disease progression. These methods draw from cluster analysis, recursive partitioning, mixed effects modeling and Markov modeling. She currently collaborates with investigators across multiple disciplines ranging from oncology to immunology to identify and develop appropriate techniques for analyzing single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) and disease outcomes. In addition, Dr. Foulkes is working on establishing methods for understanding the complex relationships among HIV-1 genotypic markers of resistance to antiretroviral drugs, cellular immune modulation and clinical outcomes.
Dr. Foulkes received a B.A. in Mathematics from Brown University in 1994 and an Sc.D. in Biostatistics from Harvard School of Public Health in 2000.
