About Eleanor

Dr Murray is an Assistant Professor of Epidemiology at Boston University School of Public Health. Her research is on causal inference methodology for improving evidence-based decision-making by patients, clinicians, and policy makers. She uses novel statistical methods to answer comparative effectiveness questions for complex and time-varying treatments using observational data and randomized trials when available, and individual-level simulation modeling when insufficient data exist in the time frame required for decision-making. She is applying these methods to a variety of medical conditions including HIV progression, cancer, psychiatric conditions, sepsis, and cardiovascular disease. She completed a postdoctoral research fellowship in Epidemiology at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, working on causal inference for comparative effectiveness and real-world evidence in the HSPH Program on Causal Inference. She holds an ScD in Epidemiology and MSc in Biostatistics from Harvard, an MPH in Epidemiology from Columbia Mailman School of Public Health, and a BSc in Biology from McGill University. Dr Murray is an Associate Editor for Social Media at the American Journal of Epidemiology, and can be reached on Twitter at @epiellie.
