Tim NeCamp

I am a PhD student in the Department of Statistics at the University of Michigan. I am a currently working as a member of Professor Susan Murphy's Statistical Reinforcement Learning Lab. Prior to starting my PhD, I was a Teach for America corps member (2011) and I taught middle school mathematics in the Las Vegas Valley.

Research

My research interests involve developing statistical methodology for understanding multi-stage treatments in health. I work on constructing real time individualized sequences of treatments delivered by mobile devices (i.e. Just-in-Time Adaptive Interventions). I am also developing methodology for sequential multiple assignment randomized trials (SMARTs). SMARTs are randomized trial designs that give rise to high-quality data that can be used to develop and optimize adaptive interventions.

Social Justice

I am extremely passionate about social justice and enacting social change. I continually seek opportunities to volunteer my time to make the world a more equal place. I am also interested in ways to utilize my data science skill set to create social change.
