Dr. Althouse received a Bachelor’s of Science in Statistics from Carnegie Mellon University in 2008 before moving a few blocks down Forbes Avenue to the University of Pittsburgh for post-graduate study. He earned a Master’s degree in Applied Statistics in 2010 en route to a doctoral degree in Epidemiology at the Graduate School of Public Health in August 2013, authoring cardiovascular outcomes papers from the multicenter, international BARI 2D clinical trial as part of his graduate work. Dr. Althouse began his post-graduate career as a faculty statistician for Magee Womens Research Institute from 2013-2015, then served in a similar capacity at the UPMC Heart and Vascular Institute from 2015-2018 before he was recruited to the Center for Research on Health Care in August 2018.
