Avi Kenny, Ph.D.

I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Biostatistics and Bioinformatics at Duke University, with a secondary appointment at the Duke Global Health Institute. I studied biostatistics at the University of Washington with Dr. Marco Carone, and previously served as the Director of Research, Monitoring, and Evaluation at Last Mile Health. My current research interests include:

  • Statistical methods to handle treatment effect heterogeneity in stepped wedge cluster randomized trials
  • Survival analysis using machine learning tools
  • Evaluation of global health programs
  • Statistical computational and simulation methodology
  • Correlates of protection analysis in vaccine clinical trials
