Maria Kamenetsky, Ph.D., joined DCEG in June 2022 as a postdoctoral fellow in the Biostatistics Branch (BB). She earned an M.S. in statistics in 2016 and a Ph.D. in epidemiology in 2022, both from the University of Wisconsin, Madison. Her dissertation research was on spatial epidemiology and spatial statistics methods, specifically focusing on regularized and multi-model methods for spatial and spatio-temporal cluster detection and applications to breast cancer.
Now in the Occupational and Environmental Epidemiology Branch (OEEB), Dr. Kamenetsky is continuing to develop methodology to explore spatial aspects of environmental mixtures, under the mentorship of Alexander Keil, Ph.D., Earl Stadtman Investigator, and Paul Albert, Ph.D., Director and senior investigator, BB. She is currently leading projects that explore methods for leveraging mixtures data to improve spatial mapping of well water contamination and that develop new approaches for parsing out important groups of exposures within a mixture.
