Dr. Stephanie Dixon received her MSc (2004) and PhD (2009) in statistics at the University of Guelph under the supervision of Dr. Gerarda Darlington. In the fall of 2007, she came to the department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics at UWO to work with Dr. Allan Donner as a research associate, a collaborative position with the Population Health Intervention Research Centre at the University of Calgary. In this role she was involved in research relevant to population health, namely statistical methods for correlated observations, with a focus on community-intervention trials. Additionally, she contributed to collaborative research on a school-based mental-health trial (University of Calgary) and ethical considerations in public health (University of Ottawa). In December 2009, Stephanie was awarded postdoctoral funding through the Ministry of Research and Innovation to develop methodology for cluster randomization trials with time-to-event outcomes. Additionally, Stephanie has been actively involved with the UWO community as President of the Postdoctoral Association at Western (http://www.postdocs.uwo.ca/).
