Assistant Professor-Clinical


Joanne Kim, PhD, is an Assistant Professor on the clinical track in the Department of Biomedical Informatics and in the Center for Biostatistics at The Ohio State University. Dr. Kim joined the Center for Biostatistics in 2023 after receiving her doctoral degree in Biostatistics from the Medical University of South Carolina. Before starting her doctorate study, she worked as a biostatistician at the Hollings Cancer Center in the Medical University of South Carolina and extensively worked in collaboration with cancer researchers. Her research focuses on the Bayesian spatio-temporal modeling to deal with complex correlation structure that arises from geographical proximity and population characteristics bound to geographical regions, especially in the context of population-level cancer disparity studies and infectious disease surveillance.
