Kevin Dodd, PhD, is a Mathematical Statistician in the Biometry Research Group.
Dr. Dodd provides statistical review of Division of Cancer Prevention (DCP) protocols and concepts, including protocols for the National Cancer Institute (NCI) Community Oncology Research Program (NCORP) and the Consortia for Early Phase Prevention Trials. He is a statistical consultant to other programs in DCP and the Cancer Prevention Fellowship Program. He also serves on the Physician’s Data Query (PDQ) Screening and Prevention Editorial Board. Dr. Dodd is an expert in survey statistics and measurement error, especially in dietary assessment.
Dr. Dodd advises internationally on the use of the NCI Method to account for measurement error in studies of dietary intake. Application of the NCI Method permits analysis of long-term dietary intakes when data is collected using short-term recall instruments. He provides statistical and programming guidance for use of the NCI Method by the extramural research community.
Dr. Dodd earned his PhD in statistics from Iowa State University in 1999, the same year he began working at NCI in the Division of Cancer Control and Population Sciences (DCCPS). He joined the Biometry Research Group in 2007.
