Dr. Monica Taljaard


I graduated with a degree in Statistics and Economics from the University of Pretoria, South Africa. This was followed by a Master's degree in Statistics from the University of South Africa. I was a lecturer in Statistics at the University of Port Elizabeth in South Africa. After immigrating to Canada in 2000, I completed my PhD degree in Biostatistics and Epidemiology under the supervision of Dr. Allan Donner and Dr. Neil Klar at Western University, London, Ontario in 2006. My PhD thesis involved missing data in cluster randomized trials. I joined the Ottawa Hospital Research Institute as Associate Scientist in 2006.
