Brief Biography of Dr. Sattar

I am a Professor of Biostatistics in the Department of Population and Quantitative Health Sciences at Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine. My research interests are in longitudinal studies with complex problems, random-effects survival models, joint modeling of outcomes, Bayesian semiparametric regression for high-dimensional longitudinal data, and dynamic treatment regimens (Q-learning). As a biostatistician, I am interested in interventional and observational clinical studies. Over the past 12 years, I have become devoted to applying biostatistical science to the health sciences as a contributor, continual learner, and educator. I teach graduate courses and advise M.S. and Ph.D. students and postdoctoral fellows in Biostatistics. I also conduct Biostatistics seminars for clinical science residents and fellows, and serve on the editorial board of Statistical Methods in Medical Research.
