Jeffrey Shaffer, PhD, is a biostatistician and data capture and management specialist. His current work involves capturing, managing, and analyzing clinical and laboratory data for infectious diseases in West Africa (including Lassa fever, Ebola virus disease, and malaria) where he oversees the data management and biostatistics cores for two large federally-funded research projects. He has extensive international research experience and regularly provides training workshops and sets up data capture and management systems across West Africa. His earlier research focused on capturing, managing, and analyzing data on environmental exposures, prostate cancer, and infant mortality. Shaffer’s expertise covers statistical analysis, data capture, data management, survey design and analysis, geographic information systems (GIS), statistical programming, experimental design, population sampling, sample size and statistical power assessment, spatial analysis, hierarchical modeling, and time trend analysis. Shaffer teaches graduate courses in GIS and biostatistics and undergraduate courses in introductory public health and statistical applications.
