Joey Dickens

Joey Dickens

Postdoctoral Fellow

University of Michigan Department of Epidemiology

Joey is a postdoctoral fellow in the Epidemiology department at the University of Michigan. Before joining Epibayes he completed his PhD in Statistics at UM. His thesis research developed novel methods for performing mediation and other mechanistic analyses with applications in neuroimaging and pharmacokinetic modeling. His first projects with Epibayes will involve modeling influenza transmission dynamics in order to better understand vaccine effectiveness and the risk of transmission from community and household contacts.

Jon Zelner

Jon Zelner

Assistant Professor

University of Michigan

Jon is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Epidemiology and the Center for Social Epidemiology and Population Health at the University of Michigan. Dr. Zelner is an infectious disease epidemiologist whose research is focused on the intersection of social and biological mechanisms in spatiotemporal patterns of infectious disease transmission. His work covers a broad range of infections with a primary focus on respiratory infections including tuberculosis, influenza and COVID-19, as well as vaccine-preventible diseases and diarrheal disease.

Krzysztof Sakrejda

Krzysztof Sakrejda

Statistical Epidemiologist

University of Michigan

Krzysztof is a statistical epidemiologist who has experience working with large datasets from surveillance sources and medical trials. His research is on creating decision support tools for public health challenges by applying mathematical modeling, Bayesian inference, and modern data science techniques. Past projects addressed dengue fever control, spatial models of contraceptive access, and the comparative evaluation of new treatments in oncology. Dr. Sakrejda is currently a Senior Research Area Specialist in the Department of Epidemiology and the Center for Social Epidemiology and Population Health at the University of Michigan. His current research is focused on decision support tools for infectious diseases of public concern, including COVID-19.

Nina Masters

PhD Candidate

University of Michigan Department of Epidemiology

Nina is a doctoral candidate in Epidemiology at the University of Michigan. She did her MPH in Global Health Epidemiology at the University of Michigan and her bachelors in Chemistry and Materials Engineering at Princeton University. Her dissertation research focuses on spatial transmission models infectious diseases, the impact of clustered non-vaccination on outbreak risk, and the evolution of vaccine hesitancy. She is passionate about science communication and seeks to make epidemiologic research accessible with her blog.
