Justin Manjourides


Associate Professor

Public Health and Health Sciences

Research Interests

Statistical modeling, machine learning, real-world evidence, measurement error


Dr. Justin Manjourides’ current research interests involve developing new statistical methodologies to better analyze observational health data in the presence of missing or misspecified information, with specific applications to environmental health, real world data, and occupational health interventions. Dr. Manjourides is currently working across several NIH, EPA, and CDC funded grants involving research on hybrid machine learning and biostatistical methods for estimating associations between environmental exposures and adverse birth outcomes, risk mapping of drug-resistance tuberculosis, and the design and analysis of occupational health and wellbeing interventions for construction workers.
