I'm Theofanis Balanos, currently pursuing a Ph.D. in Biostatistics at IU Richard M. Fairbanks School of Public Health. My academic background includes a BSc in Maths and an MSc in Biostatistics from the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens.
As an Instructor at IU, I teach Biostatistics, develop study materials, and mentor students. My professional journey involves roles as a Teaching Assistant and Research Assistant, contributing to studies on hazardous drinking and HIV care outcomes.
Before my Ph.D., I worked at the Epidemiology & Medical Statistics Lab in Greece, conducting a Panel Study on Ozone effects on children's respiratory health. Proficient in SAS, R, Stata, Python, and more, I'm passionate about survival analysis, clinical trials, and multi-state models. In summary, I'm dedicated to advancing Biostatistics through a blend of academic excellence, teaching, and impactful research.
I teach Biostatistics for informatics.
The content includes lectures and labs covering introductory concepts in Biostatistics. I design study guides, quizzes, and exams to assess students' understanding. Additionally, I provide support by assisting students in the lab during open hours, scheduling one-on-one meetings, and organizing classroom materials. My role involves creating and presenting PowerPoint slides to facilitate the learning process for students enrolled in the course.
