David Conti, PhD
Professor of Population and Public Health Sciences
The Conti Lab performs research in genetic and environmental epidemiology with a particular interest in identifying and characterizing risk factors across populations. This includes development of statistical methods and applied collaborations. Methodological research aims to integrate multiple omic measurements, biological knowledge, and external prior information in statistical modeling, primarily focusing on the use of Bayesian hierarchical models. More recently, we have been developing a stochastic epidemic model for the COVID-19 pandemic in Los Angeles County. https://contilab.usc.edu
