Grand Rounds Lecture
Assistant Professor of Epidemiology, University of Pittsburgh Graduate School of Public Health
Dr. Ashley Naimi’s research falls at the crossroads of causal inference, social epidemiology and human reproduction. Dr. Naimi develops and applies analytic methods to non-experimental data to assess the effectiveness of potential policy interventions to reduce the overall burden of and social disparities in adverse pregnancy and childhood outcomes.
A major focus of his current work is the development, use and interpretation of statistical methods for causal mediation analysis in social epidemiology. He is adapting a variety of modeling techniques to estimate more realistic intervention effects (stochastic mediation contrasts). His approach relies heavily on the principles and concepts of causal inference, comparative effectiveness research and implementation science. The end goal of Dr. Naimi’s research is to develop targeted actionable strategies to reduce racial disparities in preterm birth.
