Rob Cavanaugh PhD, CCC-SLP
Research Data Analyst, OHDSI Center, Roux Institute, Northeastern University [1/2023 - present]
I'm a staff research data analyst supporting Dr. Brianne Olivieri-Mui and Dr. Louisa Smith at the Roux OHDSI Center and a PhD candidate at the University of Pittsburgh. My research has focused on improving behavioral treatments for post-stroke aphasia (a language disorder common after stroke) and clinical service delivery in aphasia rehabilitation. In my current role, I'm shifting to focus on health services/population health research. I'm also passionate about quantitative methods, statistical programming, and open science.
