Thomas McAndrew is a computational scientist working at the intersection of biostatistics and data science, studying ensemble models, expert-prediction, and crowdsourcing for forecasting infectious diseases. He received his Ph.D. in Mathematical Sciences from the University of Vermont, an MS in Biostatistics from Georgetown University, and a BS in Biomathematics from the University of Scranton. In industry, Tom was Associate Director of Biostatistics at the Cardiovascular Research Foundation where he led a team of biostatisticians that designed and analyzed multinational clinical trials, and while there, he coauthored over 60 manuscripts in cardiology.

McAndrew's research focuses on (i) building ensemble algorithms that combine statistical models of infectious disease agents and (ii) aggregating human judgment to provide accurate predictions of infectious disease outbreaks and biological phenomena.
