Elena Colicino, PhD
Elena Colicino, PhD, is Assistant Professor in the Department of Environmental Medicine and Public Health at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. Dr. Colicino works on methods development for environmental health data in order to assess the effects of individual and joint environmental exposures on human health throughout the life course. She also adapts novel machine learning and Bayesian algorithms to high-dimensional molecular markers to reconstruct prior environmental exposures, predict future health conditions, and characterize vulnerable populations. She strongly supports reproducible and rigorous science creating novel R-packages and making her codes publicly available on GitHub repositories.
