Josh Goldstein is a Research Assistant Professor at the Social and Decision Analytics Laboratory within the Biocomplexity Institute & Initiative of UVA. He received his PhD in statistics from Penn State in 2015. His research includes spatial and predictive modeling, Markov chain Monte Carlo methods, and generating synthetic populations. The population scale and dynamics of his research varies from the cellular level (respiratory syncytial virus infections) to country-wide populations in Africa (rotavirus infections in Africa) to county-level data in the U.S. (epidemics and invasive species).
