Assistant Professor, Population Health SciencesDr. Alexander Kirpich is a biostatistician and an assistant professor in the Department of Population Health Sciences at the School of Public Health at Georgia State University. He received his undergraduate degree in mathematics (2006) from Belarusian State University. It was followed by his master’s degree in statistics (2011) and Ph.D. in biostatistics (2015) which were both received from the University of Florida. Before joining Georgia State University, Dr. Kirpich worked as a postdoctoral associate on multiple research projects at the University of Florida.Dr. Kirpich is a biostatistician with expertise in infectious disease statistical modeling (cholera, dengue, HIV, anthrax, and others), epidemiology, and bioinformatics. Alexander worked on transmission models of cholera and HIV in collaboration with medical doctors and epidemiologists. Alexander also has expertise in spatial analysis of surveillance cancer data and in work with metabolomics data. His collaboration efforts also include statistical data analyses and relevant assistance for multiple epidemiologists, medical doctors and field scientists. Alexander has broader interests and goals in application of statistical methods to public health and biomedical research questions and policies and to address statistical challenges, such as missing data, asymptomatic infections, underreporting, and noise during data acquisition.
