Bio:Keith Goldfeld, DrPH, MS, MPA is a biostatistician interested in health services research, cluster randomized trials, and causal inference for secondary data analysis. His current research involves collaborations in palliative care, geriatric care, and addiction. At the Mailman School of Public Health at Columbia University, where he completed his DrPH, Dr. Goldfeld’s research explored methodologies for analyzing treatment strategies for nursing home residents with dementia at the end-of-life. He is currently collaborating on an NIH-funded study to evaluate an intervention designed to improve the quality of care provided to patients living with dementia. In addition, he developed simstudy, an R software package that enables researchers, teachers, and students to easily generate simulated study data for a broad range of study designs. The package and how to use it are described in his blog, ouR data generation.
