I’m currently an Associate Professor of Statistics and Sociology at the University of Washington. I’m also a core faculty member in the Center for Statistics and the Social Sciences and a Senior Data Science Fellow at the eScience Institute.
I’m the current Editor of the Journal of Computational and Graphical Statistics. I’m excited and humbled to be a 2019 recipient of the NIH Director’s New Innovator Award.
My research covers a variety of topics in statistics and data science, typically motivated by scientific questions in global health, economics, demography, and sociology. Please see my publications, software, and working papers. More information about OpenVA, our suite of open tools to manage and analyze verbal autopsy surveys, is available here.
Tyler McCormick and colleagues are seeking multiple Postdoctoral research collaborators (12-month service period) to join an interdisciplinary team working on methodology, data collection, and analysis directed by scientific questions in the social and health sciences.
The scope of the positions is open. Potential projects include, but are not limited to:
Improving data collection efficiency and accuracy in link-tracing designs (e.g. Respondent driven sampling)
Partial graph data collection strategies for networks (e.g. Aggregated Relational Data)
Large scale models for anomaly detection on graphs
Developing models to represent structure in networks using low dimensional manifolds
Modeling demographic and health trends in low-resource settings
Developing a decision-making framework for policy decisions based on predictions statistical and machine learning models
Pleas feel free to email Tyler (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you’re interested and would like to discuss potential projects. Please see thmccormick.github.io for further information about recent work and ongoing projects.
