Timothy L. McAuliffe, PhD
Professor and Director, CAIR Quantitative Core
Dr. McAuliffe is a biostatistician with particular experience in the evaluation of HIV prevention intervention outcomes. His research at CAIR focuses on the reliability and validity of self-reported risk behavior, and on developing and evaluating novel HIV risk assessment strategies and methods to evaluate the effectiveness of HIV prevention interventions including electronic diary reports for reporting sexual activity. His expertise has led to the development of analytical strategies in HIV prevention trials involving community and social network randomization.
