Raphiel  Murden

Asst Professor

Research Assistant Professor

Faculty, Biostatistics and Bioinformatics

The majority of my research has focused on data integration methods with applications to neuroimaging statistics. We are currently building a probabilistic model to conduct data integration analysis and apply it to data from older patients who are either at-risk for or diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease. However, I am currently transitioning to focus on functional data analysis with applications to health disparities. This work focuses on assessing psychological and social factors associated with elevated risk for cardiovascular disease in Black women. Lastly, I also serve as a member of the Biostatistical Collaboration core, where I provide statistical expertise to early-career and student investigators for data analysis and study design.
