Statistics Collaborative - Design and analysis for biomedical research


Jie Zhou, Ph.D.
Biostatistician II

Jie Zhou, Ph.D., joined Statistics Collaborative, Inc. (SCI) in 2018. Although she has been at SCI for a short time, Dr. Zhou has already been involved in clinical studies in a number of areas, including cardiovascular disease, lung cancer, glioblastoma, urothelial cancer, systemic lupus erythematosus, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, and type 2 diabetes.  She has served as a programmer and biostatistician for Data Monitoring Committee (DMC) and consulting projects.

Before joining SCI, Dr. Zhou gained experience with complex data structures such as interval censored data and advanced statistical methods, for example, multiple imputation and the Expectation-Maximization algorithm. Her published papers in the statistical literature focus on the generalized odds-rate models and cure models with interval censored data. Experienced with both SAS and R, she has contributed to several R packages, including “TransModel”, “ICGOR”, and “GORCure”.

Dr. Zhou received her B.S. in Statistics from East China Normal University in 2012, and her M.S.P.H. (2014) and Ph.D. (2018) in Biostatistics from the University of South Carolina. Her dissertation was titled, “Estimation of Complex Survival Models and Their Applications in Epidemiology Studies”.
