Dr. Reuben Adatorwovor is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Biostatistics at the College of Public Health. He is affiliated with the Center for Health Equity Transformation (CHET) and the Markey Cancer Center (MCC) at the University of Kentucky. His recent work focused on collaborative and statistical methodology development for survival analysis in the presence of competing risk.

In particular, his applicable research includes cancer survival, clinical trials, substance use disorder (cocaine, alcohol, opioid), infectious diseases, telehealth and teledentistry, diabetes, nutritional epidemiology, and bone health. He develops parametric, nonparametric, and regression methods for relaxing the underlying assumptions for current survival analysis methods for population-based studies. He is fascinated by the unknown (machine and deep learning algorithms).
