Stephanie C. Hicks

I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Biostatistics at Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, a Preceptor in the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology PhD program, and a faculty member of the Johns Hopkins Data Science Lab. I’m also a co-host of the The Corresponding Author podcast, member of the Editorial Board for Genome Biology, and co-founder of R-Ladies Baltimore.

I received my B.S. in Mathematics from LSU and my M.A. and Ph.D. from the Department of Statistics at Rice University under the direction of Marek Kimmel and Sharon Plon (@splon).

I completed my postdoctoral training with Rafael Irizarry (@rafalab) in the Department of Data Science at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health. This postdoctoral research resulted in a K99/R00 grant from the National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI) (@genome_gov) to develop statistical methods for the normalization and quantification of single-cell RNA-sequencing data.
