Thomas McAndrew is a computational scientist working at the intersection of biostatistics and data science. Dr.McAndrew’s research aims to build more accurate, calibrated computational models of the trajectory of infectious agents by combining data generated by a surveillance system and human judgment such as perceptions/predictions. 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.

Areas of Research and Publications

McAndrew's research focuses on building algorithms that combine statistical models of infectious disease agents, models that aggregate human judgment, and models that combine both statistical models and human judgment with the goal of producing accurate predictions of infectious disease outbreaks and biological phenomena.
