Graduate Research Assistant
Daniel E. Park serves as a graduate research assistant. He received the M.S.P.H. degree in international health from Johns Hopkins University, Bloomberg School of Public Health in 2011, and is currently a Ph.D. student at George Washington University in the Department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics.
Dan’s research has focused on pediatric pneumonia, including providing support for revised WHO vaccine dosing schedules for pneumococcal conjugate vaccines, novel diagnostics such as the use of digital stethoscopes in developing country settings to aid healthcare workers in the diagnosis and proper treatment of pneumonia, and applying novel Bayesian analytic methods to evaluate etiology by incorporating data across multiple sources from the Pneumonia Etiology Research for Child Health (PERCH) project, the largest, multi-country study of its kind in over 20 years.
