Pamela Shaw is Senior Investigator in the Biostatistics Unit at The Kaiser Permanente Washington Health Research Institute. She completed a BA in Mathematics and French at Grinnell College, and an MS in Mathematics and Ph.D. in Biostatistics at the University of Washington. Dr. Shaw’s statistical research interests include methodology to address covariate and outcome measurement error, survival analysis, and clinical trial design. She has a particular interest in the epidemiology of chronic diseases, behavioral intervention studies, and the use of biomarker studies to calibrate self-reported nutritional intake and physical-activity. Her methodological interests also include a focus on how to improve statistical inference by better tailoring the statistical test to the scientific question of interest. She recently co-authored the textbook Essentials of Probability Theory for Statisticians (CRC Press 2016).
