ASSISTANT PROFESSOR, DIVISION OF BIOSTATISTICS, UNIVERSITY OF MINNESOTA SCHOOL OF PUBLIC HEALTH
Ann Brearley is a biostatistician who divides her time between teaching and collaborative research. She has developed and taught introductory biostatistics courses in-person, remotely and online for 13 years, including Biostatistical Literacy (which she developed), Biostatistics II, Clinical Trials, and Biostatistical Consulting. She collaborates with physicians and scientists to design, carry out, analyze and publish clinical trials and other research studies in a variety of areas; she is particularly interested in research to improve health in low- and middle-income countries. She is interested in building research capacity in underserved areas domestically and internationally: she directs the Biostats4You website which provides freely available, vetted biostatistics training materials for non-statisticians, and serves on the board of the TSHS Resources Portal which contains freely available, peer-reviewed health-related datasets for instructors to use in teaching. She received a BA in chemistry from St. Olaf College, a PhD in analytical chemistry from the University of Minnesota, and an MS in biostatistics from the University of Minnesota.
