Alicia Johnson, M.P.H.

  • Biostatistician


Alicia works as a statistician in the Biostatistics and Design Program (BDP) and provides mentorship to junior investigators through her work with the Oregon Clinical and Translational Research Institute (OCTRI)’s Biostatistics, Epidemiology, and Research Design (BERD) program. She is also an instructor for the course Introduction to Biostatistics (BSTA 525) and leads seminars on biostatistics topics such as power and sample size calculations. She believes that people have an inherent sense of statistical thinking, but the mathematical notation used in statistics is an intimidating hurdle for students. As an educator, she aims to translate the math into real-world application so that students can develop their statistical thinking skills.
