ERIC J. DAZA

I strive to advance the science of individual well-being by bridging and communicating statistical concepts with precision and empathy.

  • I am a digital health biostatistician and data scientist with 18+ years of experience.

  • I build study design and analysis methods for individual-centered digital health using an n-of-1 / single-case causal inference framework.

Bio

"Uncertain times call for certain measurements." (Science, Apr 2017)

I strive to coordinate efforts to innovate, refine, and implement statistical study design and analysis practices that strengthen the scientific, regulatory, and ethical rigor of health promotion and disease prevention using digital tools and data. To do so, I use my natural instincts to find connections across different practice areas, identify underlying concepts shared by distinct technical disciplines and philosophies, and highlight similarities among various personal histories and experiences. I communicate my findings through metaphor and wordplay punexpectedly often.

Dr. Eric J. Daza is a data science biostatistician at Evidation Health. He has worked for 18+ years in both industry and academia, in pharma clinical trials, survey sampling, nutrition, maternal/child health, global/international health, health promotion & disease prevention, healthtech, digital health, and behavioral medicine.


Dr. Daza also created and edits Stats-of-1, a digital health statistics blog. He investigates how to discover causal relationships from an individual’s own wearable device, sensor, and app data. He is also a member of the International Collaborative Network for N-of-1 Clinical Trials and Single-Case Experimental Designs.


As a privileged middle-class Brown Asian immigrant, Eric Jay earned both his BA in Neurobiology / Cognitive Studies and MPS in Applied Statistics at Cornell University, followed by his DrPH in Biostatistics at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. He then trained as a postdoc at the Stanford Prevention Research Center. He is also Jesuit-trained.

Here's a fun video by Eric Jay's brilliantly witty UNC friends in which he plays a singing statistics professor: A Statistical New World (see Videos page for more clips)
