Research Interest
Dr. Althouse received a Bachelor’s of Science in Statistics from Carnegie Mellon University in 2008, thereafter moving to the University of Pittsburgh for post-graduate study. He earned a Master’s degree in Applied Statistics in 2010 en route to completing his doctoral degree in Epidemiology at the University of Pittsburgh’s Graduate School of Public Health in August 2013, authoring several cardiovascular outcomes papers from the BARI 2D study as part of his graduate work. He was appointed the faculty biostatistician at Magee Womens Research Institute for two years, co-authoring more than 20 currently published manuscripts in women’s health, oncology, gynecologic surgery, and bariatric surgery before he was recruited to join UPMC’s Heart and Vascular Institute in 2015. Dr. Althouse has presented at national meetings of the American Diabetes Association, American Heart Association, American Statistical Association, and International Biometrics Society as well as co-authoring papers in a wide survey of peer-reviewed journals on topics related to cardiovascular disease, diabetes, exercise, maternal & child health. Current research interests include general and interventional cardiology, heart failure, transcatheter therapies, aortic valve replacement, mitral valve repair and replacement, and ventricular assist devices.
