Epidemiology: Principles and Practical Guidelines

Has been author and co-author of chapter 2, 20 and 24. (View the chapter here:  Basic-Concepts-in-EpidemiologyData-CleaningStatistical-Modeling)

This textbook presents epidemiology in a practical manner, contextualized with discussions of theory and ethics, so that students and professionals from all academic backgrounds may develop a deep appreciation for how to conduct and interpret epidemiological research. Readers will develop skills to: search for and appraise literature critically, develop important research questions, design and implement studies to address those questions, perform and interpret fundamental statistical estimations and tests, consider the ethical implications of all stages of research, report findings in publications, and advocate for change in the public health setting. Epidemiology is and will remain a discipline in motion, and this textbook aims at reflecting this dynamism and keeping pace with its momentum. This textbook is not only a classroom tool with high utility but also an essential reference and guide for those engaging in research involving human subjects.
