About Caroline Groth
Dr. Groth earned her Ph.D. in Biostatistics from University of Minnesota School of Public Health in 2017 and her B.A. in Psychology (Statistics Concentration) from St. Olaf College in 2012. Dr. Groth also completed a postdoctoral fellowship from 2017-2019 at the Department of Preventive Medicine in Northwestern University’s Feinberg School of Medicine.
Since 2012, Dr. Groth has been active with the airborne chemical exposure assessment team in the GuLF STUDY, a long-term effort to investigate the health of workers and volunteers who responded to the 2010 Deepwater Horizon oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. The study is sponsored by National Institutes of Health, and the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences is leading this research with the support of community groups. Dr. Groth’s work has been published in Spatial Statistics, Annals of Work Exposures and Health, Journal of Exposure Science and Environmental Epidemiology and Environmetrics.
Dr. Groth has statistical research interests in missing data, Bayesian statistics and measurement error. She is a highly collaborative researcher with interests in a variety of areas including environmental health, toxicology, nutrition, psychology and neuroscience.
