R. Todd Ogden

Professor of Biostatistics (in Psychiatry)

Research Scientist of Neuroscience, New York State Psychiatric Institute

Dr. R. Todd Ogden has interests in a wide variety of topics in both statistical methodology and various application areas. He is currently collaborating with researchers at the New York State Psychiatric Institute on various statistical modeling issues with the analysis of data from brain imaging studies. Other ongoing interests include functional data analysis, nonparametric regression, wavelet methods, statistical modeling, statistical computing, and statistical education.
