Jeff Goldsmith

Dr. Jeff Goldsmith received his BS in Mathematics from Dickinson College in 2007 and his PhD in Biostatistics from Johns Hopkins University in 2012; he joined Columbia University in 2012. His research develops state-of-the-art methods to understand patterns in large, complex datasets in stroke and neurorehabilitation, physical activity monitoring using wearable devices, and environmental health. He incorporates data science techniques for transparency and reproducibility into analyses, and research projects are accompanied by robust, publicly available software and analytical pipelines. This experience directly informed Dr. Goldsmith's development of a course that teaches the best practices in public health data science and shapes his approach to mentoring students at all levels.
