Nima Hejazi is a PhD student in the Division of Biostatistics, advised jointly by Mark van der Laan and Alan Hubbard. He was awarded an M.A. in Biostatistics in 2017, and a B.A., with a triple major in Molecular & Cell Biology, Psychology, and Public Health in 2015, both by UC Berkeley. Nima's primary research interests lie at the interface of causal inference, non-parametrics and machine learning, and statistical computing; other related interests include survival analysis, applied statistics (and data science), and reproducible research. His work is generally motivated by problems arising in biomedical science and public health, including vaccine trials, bioinformatics and computational biology, and precision medicine.
