Dr. Corinne Riddell, PhD MSc, is a social and perinatal epidemiologist, and an Assistant Adjunct Professor of Biostatistics at the University of California, Berkeley, School of Public Health. She examines racial inequalities in health between Black and White Americans, to understand why some states have fared better at reducing inequalities than other states. In particular, she is interested in infant mortality and injuries (homicides, suicides, and overdoses) as contributors to very early deaths. Dr. Riddell uses interactive data visualization to explore these topics, as well as sophisticated surveillance and causal methodologies. In Fall 2018, she headed the evolution of PH142 (Introduction to Biostatistics in Public Health), to incorporate R for data science, and introduce students to data manipulation and visualization as part of their public health education.
