Sherri Rose, PhD

Sherri Rose, PhD, is an associate professor of health care policy (biostatistics) in the Department of Health Care Policy at Harvard Medical School. Her work is centered around developing and integrating innovative statistical approaches to advance public health and health care research. Broadly, Dr. Rose's methodological research focuses on nonparametric machine learning for causal inference and prediction. Within health policy, Dr. Rose works on risk adjustment, comparative effectiveness research, and health program impact evaluation. She co-leads the Health Policy Data Science Lab and is a faculty member in the Healthcare Markets and Regulation Lab at Harvard. Dr. Rose coauthored the book Targeted Learning: Causal Inference for Observational and Experimental Data published by the Springer Series in Statistics. She serves on several editorial boards, including as associate editor for the Journal of the American Statistical Association (JASA) - Theory and Methods. Dr. Rose was selected as a 2016 AcademyHealth New Investigator and, in 2014, was awarded a William F. Milton Fund grant from Harvard University to develop a novel robust estimator for the study of chronic disease and prosperity in a complex study design.
 
Dr. Rose received her PhD in biostatistics from the University of California, Berkeley (2011). Her doctoral thesis developed double robust estimators in biased sampling designs. She was honored with the Evelyn Fix Memorial Prize, which is awarded to the PhD student on the Berkeley campus showing the greatest promise in statistical research with a preference for applications to biology and problems of health, and the Chin-Long Chiang Biostatistics Student of the Year Award. Her graduate work was also recognized by the American Statistical Association with the Gertrude M. Cox Scholarship in Statistics, Statistics in Epidemiology Young Investigator Award, and Statistics in Epidemiology Graduate Student Travel Award. Additionally, Dr. Rose received a U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Scholarship for Disadvantaged Students each year of her PhD program. In 2013, Dr. Rose completed an NSF Mathematical Sciences Postdoctoral Research Fellowship in the Department of Biostatistics at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. Her postdoctoral projects were recognized with a Johns Hopkins Delta Omega Scholarship and a Young Investigator Award from the International Conference on Advances in Interdisciplinary Statistics and Combinatorics. Dr. Rose graduated from George Washington University with her BS in statistics. She was the recipient of GW's Recent Alumni Achievement Award in 2011.
