PhD Candidate in Epidemiology

UNC Chapel Hill

Paul Zivich is a doctoral candidate in epidemiology at University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, with an MPH in epidemiology from The Ohio State University. He is interested in causal inference with potential outcomes, particularly in the context of networks and contagious outcomes (e.g. infectious diseases, etc.). His work ranges from assessing the performance of causal inference estimators through simulations - to collection of contact network data with electronic sensors - to application of causal inference in the context of infectious disease and social epidemiology. He is also the author of the zEpid Python library, a free-software library for epidemiologic analyses and quantitative causal inference.
