Researcher | Research Overview

Dr. Hae-Young Kim‘s primary research interest is the design, planning, and analysis of studies, as well as statistical methodological research. She has been involved in designing and analyzing data from clinical trials and observational studies and has substantial collaborative experience in different therapeutic areas. She is also interested in statistical methods in clustered correlated data, survival analysis, longitudinal data analysis, and sample size/power calculations.

Researcher | Research Background

Dr. Kim joined Boston Children’s Hospital in 2023 as a faculty biostatistician in the Department of Otolaryngology and Communication Enhancement and the Biostatistics and Research Design Center in the Institutional Centers of Clinical and Translational Research. Dr. Kim holds a doctorate in Biostatistics from University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. She has been a biostatistician or co-investigator in many NIH grants, reviewed clinical papers for numerous journals, and taught graduate-level biostatistics courses. Prior to joining Boston Children's, she served as Associate Professor in Biostatistics in the Department of Public Health at the New York Medical College.
