Research Interests & Collaborations
Dr. Nahum-Shani collaborates with Linda Collins and John Dziak on developing experimental design approaches for factorial experimental designs, particularly in the context of clustered (nested) data. She is primarily interested in applying these methods for the development of potent organizational interventions. Dr. Nahum-Shani also works with Susan Murphy on introducing the concept of adaptive interventions to behavioral scientists, as well as on the application of statistical methods and experimental designs for the formulation of dynamic treatment strategies.
