Dr. Lindner joined the Department of Statistics in 2023 after completing her master’s and doctoral degree in Biostatistics from the University of Pennsylvania. She previously held a position at the NIH National Cancer Institute where she applied correlated age-period-cohort models to study health disparities in prostate cancer. At the University of Pennsylvania, she used survival analysis and regression methods to study the influence of dialysis treatment non-adherence to post-kidney transplant outcomes. Finally, her dissertation work developed novel ROC-based statistical methods for the discovery and evaluation of nontraditional biomarkers with applications in omics data.
