 About Publications 


Dr. Paul Rogers received his Bachelor of Science in mathematics and his master’s degree and Ph.D. in biostatistics from the University of Oklahoma. His work experience is broad, from a computer scientist building enterprise-wide systems to performing statistical consulting and research epidemiology. He joined NCTR in January 2020 as a biostatistician in the Biostatistics Branch of the Division of Bioinformatics and Biostatistics.

Research Interests

Dr. Rogers' expertise and experience are in computational epidemiology, high-performance computing, generalized estimating equations, scientific information systems, geographic information systems (GIS), research database applications, and statistical software. His interests include population-based research, pharmacoepidemiology, rare-event modeling, and applications of GIS to epidemiology. Currently, he is conducting research with the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey on the subject of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs in the U.S. population and their relationships with antihypertensive medications.
