Melanie M. Wall

Professor of Biostatistics (in Psychiatry)
Director, Division of Biostatistics in the Department of Psychiatry
Department of Biostatistics in Mailman School of Public Health

My biostatistical expertise includes latent variable modeling (e.g. factor analysis, item response theory, latent class models, structural equation modeling), spatial data modeling (e.g. disease mapping), and longitudinal data analysis including the class of longitudinal models commonly called growth curve mixture models . I have extensive experience working with epidemiological observational data related to behavioral psycho-social public and mental health. I received a Ph.D. (1998) from the Department of Statistics at Iowa State University, and a B.S. (1993) in mathematics from Truman State University. Before moving to Columbia University in 2010, I was on faculty in Biostatistics in the School of Public Health at the University of Minnesota.
