Sandy Eckel, Ph.D.

I am an Assistant Professor in the Division of Biostatistics at the University of Southern California (USC). I primarily work on statistical methods and applications in environmental epidemiology and exhaled breath biomarkers. I am completing a K22 career development award from the NIEHS on "Methods for modeling air pollution effects on exhaled biomarkers".

Academic background. I completed my Ph.D. in Biostatistics at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, under the supervision of Dr. Tom Louis. I then spent two years as a postdoc at USC.

Personal background. I grew up in Seattle, living in Ballard and then on Bainbridge Island. I majored in Mathematics and French at Vassar College. I discovered Biostatistics during my junior year abroad in Paris. I enjoy hiking, and most Saturdays you can find me on a trail in the San Gabriel mountains.
