Rehana is an Epidemiology doctoral student at the CUNY Graduate School of Public Health and Health Policy. She was previously a biostatistician, where she gained expertise in epidemiologic and biostatistical methods, including propensity score analyses, generalized linear mixed modeling, analyses of complex survey data, and machine learning techniques. She is experienced in data management and analysis of large administrative claims databases, electronic medical record datasets, and data from epidemiologic cohorts. Most recently, she studied the effects of occupational exposures on adverse outcomes, including lung abnormalities, occupational injury, cancer, and mortality among trade workers and firefighters in NY. She also researched the mental health impacts of major events and disasters, such as the COVID-19 pandemic, the World Trade Center attack on 9/11, and Hurricane Sandy, on community and occupational cohorts. In her earlier work, she performed comparative effectiveness research of clinical procedures and drugs on adverse clinical outcomes. Rehana is currently studying how race/ethnicity and social determinants of health affect diabetes and cardiovascular disease.
