Erika Braithwaite

I obtained my bachelor's and master’s in psychology and then completed a PhD in Epidemiology at McGill University. My journey from the quantitative social sciences to the health data science field has helped me gain a host of expertise related to study design, such as clinical trials, statistical modelling techniques drawn from causal inference and econometrics.

I co-founded Precision Analytics with Erika, also holding a PhD from McGill and am an accredited statistician. While overseeing our team of data scientists and software developers, I still love to have a role in hands-on programming and of course, anything Bayesian!

In my Master’s in Epidemiology and while working at the Lady David Institute of the Jewish General Hospital I heavily employed econometric methods, in particular for investigating the causal impacts of policy introduction on population health outcomes. I have always worked with many disparate sources of data which I pride myself in cajoling into a coherent picture.

I am a Masters student in Epidemiology at McGill University. In summer 2017, I did an internship at Health Canada, where I developed several R shiny applications for interactive visualization of the Canada Vigilance Adverse Reaction Database. The experience motivated me to explore more in big data, data visualization and data mining. With open-source communities, there are endless learning opportunities in this field and I am thrilled to be part of the journey!
