About Oliver Bembom

After completing his Ph.D. in biostatistics under the supervision of Dr. Mark van der Laan, Oliver joined the biostatistics faculty at the University of California, Berkeley, as an Assistant Adjunct Professor. At the same time, he started working for Target Analytics, a recent start-up company that is based on the premise of making state-of-the-art causal inference methodology available to a wide audience of users.
In this position, he has been designing and programming the statistical engine for the first software product to be released by Target Analytics. He has also been consulting a development-stage pharmaceutical company on a drug trial that had failed to gain FDA approval. When he revealed a subgroup of patients for whom the drug in question was highly effective, the company was re-capitalized to conduct a new trial. Recently, he gave up his faculty position at Berkeley to devote more time to his work at Target Analytics.
