Jemila Hamid


Professor Jemila Hamid holds a PhD and MSc in mathematical statistics AND Statistics & Computer Science double major undergraduate training. She has worked in a collaborative interdisciplinary environment as a biostatistician for almost 15 years. Currently Dr. Hamid is a full professor in the department of Mathematics and Statistics, University of Ottawa and is an affiliate scientist at the CHEO research institute. She conducts both methodological and applied research; and has published extensively both in statistics and biomedical journals. Professor Hamid has supervised several graduate students in Statistics, Biostatistics and Health Research Methodology as well as mentored several medical residents and clinical fellows. Her methodological research includes multivariate methods, methods for longitudinal data and growth curves, methods for interrupted time series analysis, methods for analysis of high-dimensional data as well as methods for data integration including evidence synthesis methods such as meta-analysis, network meta-analysis and additive models. In her applied work, she has been working in wide-range of clinical applications requiring wide-range of statistical methods and computational algorithms.
