Nicole Carnegie is one of the many Midwestern transplants to Montana, via Minnesota and Illinois.  She graduated from St. Olaf College in 2005, received her PhD in Statistics from the University of Washington in 2009, and completed postdoctoral training in the Department of Biostatistics at Harvard School of Public Health.  After helping to establish biostatistics programs for a new school of public health at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, she joined the statistics faculty in the Department of Mathematical Sciences in 2017.  She is currently an Associate Professor of Statistics, Director of Biostatistics for the Montana INBRE Bioinformatics and Biostatistics Core, and Montana Site Director for the Research Design, Epidemiology, and Biostatistics Core for the American Indian/Alaskan Native Clinical Translational Research Program. Dr. Carnegie's research focuses on design and analysis of cluster-randomized trials in HIV prevention, infectious disease modeling, statistical models for networks, and causal inference (there's more overlap than you might think!). In between grading, teaching, researching, working with investigators, and mentoring students, Nicole tries to get in miles on her road bike and knit baby blankets for any infant within six degrees of separation in her social network.
