CANSSI has the pleasure of welcoming our new Deputy Director, Andrea Benedetti.
Andrea is an Associate Professor, jointly appointed in the departments of Medicine and Epidemiology, Biostatistics and Occupational Health at McGill University. She is primarily interested in the statistical challenges related to individual patient data meta-analysis. Andrea is a CIHR-funded biostatistician, and an author on more than 150 peer-reviewed publications.
She co-directs the DEPRSSD project. This group has collected data from across the globe and used it to provide evidence-based information on the diagnostic accuracy of commonly-used depression screening tools. Andrea is supported by a Chercheur Boursier award from the Fonds de Recherche du Quebec Santé (FRQS).
“I am really excited to begin working with the CANSSI community and to advance CANSSI’s support for statistical and data science across Canada,” says Andrea.
