Adam Davey is a professor and founding chair in the Department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics, College of Public Health and holds a secondary appointment in the Center for Data Analytics and Biomedical Informatics in Temple’s College of Science and Technology. His long-standing contributions to aging and health, which include participation in a variety of national and international projects, take long-established and usually implicit assumptions about the nature of social psychological problems and shift them in subtle yet fundamental ways, which often have far-reaching implications. Three research foci reflect his emphasis on elaborating person-environment interactions as they relate to basic and applied public health research: 1) Families as Contexts, 2) Linking Individuals and Contexts, 3) Population-Based Research with Centenarians.

In addition to his substantive work, Davey also brings more than 20 years of experience with data management and analysis including latent variable mixture models and bioinformatics. He successfully headed the Data Management and Analysis Core of “A Population-Based Study of Centenarians” (P01 AG017553), the Statistics Core of “Prevention Programs for Rural African American Families” (P20 MH068666), and served as Project Statistician for the Maine-Syracuse Longitudinal Study (R01 HL081290, Elias, PI) among numerous other projects and clinical trials.
