Inaugural MGH Biostatistics Student Research Symposium

This semester, we were very lucky to have the following students from the biostatistics department at Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health join us in several different collaborative and methodological research projects:

Carolin Schulte, Daniel Nolte, Devika Godbole, Jie Sun, Lauren Mock, Paul Licht, Ta-Chou (Vincent) Ng, Tingyi Cao, Yidan Ma, and Zainab Soetan.

Last week, at the inaugural MGH Biostatistics Student Research Symposium, six students gave presentations on their research projects:

  • Devika Godbole: Modeling the relationship between infant birthweight and gestational glucose intolerance using quantile regression
  • Zainab Soetan: Longitudinal changes in insulin secretion and sensitivity in women with gestational diabetes risk factors
  • Dan Nolte: Examining mindfulness, wellbeing, and their relationship following Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT)
  • Lauren Mock: Causal inference for temperature and mortality time series
  • Paul Licht: Identifying predictors of sustained weight loss in a weight loss intervention trial among individuals with type 2 diabetes
  • Ta-Chou (Vincent) Ng: Clustering and Risk Analysis of COVID Hospitalization with Time-varying Biomarkers
