Academic Interests

Dr. Beyene interests are in the areas of systematic reviews/meta-analyses, predictive modeling; health technology assessment, and clinical research . Additionally, he is highly interested in exploring the genetic factors relevant to illness and behaviour. His current work focuses on multi-level modeling in linkage and association analysis (applications of statistical techniques in genetics), pediatric early warning system, pain management in infants at risk for neurological impairment, and development of statistical methods for genomic data.
