 About Publications


Paul Rogers is a biostatistician in the Division of Bioinformatics and Biostatistics at FDA’s National Center for Toxicological Research (NCTR). Before joining FDA, Dr. Rogers spent 18 years at the Federal Aviation Administration’s national toxicology research laboratory in Oklahoma City. His interests include computational epidemiology, high-performance computing, generalized estimating equations, scientific information systems, research database applications, statistical software, and communication of risks.

Research Interests

Dr. Rogers's expertise and experience are focused on computational epidemiology, high-performance computing, generalized estimating equations, scientific information systems, geographic information systems (GIS), research database applications, and statistical software. In addition, his interests include population-based research, pharmacoepidemiology, rare-event modeling, and applications of GIS on epidemiology. Currently, he is conducting research with Long Short-Term Memory Networks and Intensive Care Unit vital sign data.
