Professor, Mathematics Department

Professor Elizabeth J. McGuffey's primary research interests are in the field of biostatistics.  She has developed novel methods for analyzing genome-level cancer data to identify biomarkers; she is an active member of Johns Hopkins' "Wearable and Implantable Technology" research group; and she is currently modeling the progression of sleep apnea to determine patient risk factors associated with worsening disease status.  Professor McGuffey also enjoys introducing midshipmen to biostatistical applications and has worked with a number of research students, including a Trident Scholar investigating the potential impact of genetic screening in the military and an Honors student modeling the ecological impact of beetles on hemlock tree health.
