Ann Brearley, PhD
My current teaching interests are in biostatistical literacy, active learning, online learning, project-based learning, use of ‘The Islands’ in teaching, methods for teaching consulting skills, methods for training future teachers, collaborative teaching, and evaluation. In my collaborative research I work with physicians, scientists and other professionals in the Academic Health Center to design, carry out, analyze and publish research studies. I am particularly interested in medical research aimed at helping people in low and middle income countries (LMIC), evidence-based medicine, and meta-analysis. In my first career, I was a research chemist at DuPont and at Cargill Dow, and later an independent consultant, specializing in process analytical chemistry.
