 Chandy Somayaji

Chandy joined NB-IRDT in September 2017 after working with Alberta Health on a cytotoxicity profiling project where she used data analysis and interpretation skills to evaluate potential risks to human health. As a Research Assistant, Chandy will use her background in Applied Mathematics to support NB-IRDT and MSSU researchers in preparing data sets for statistical analysis, running simulations, and producing outputs suitable for publications and reports. She will also assist in preparing grants, data access applications, REBs and research reports.

Chandy is currently taking courses in SAS programming and plans to complete these courses and use these skills for projects in Public Health. Apart from the statistical/mathematical aspects of analysis, she is also interested in policy research and development.
