A bit about me

I am a biostatistician and computational scientist helping to lead the Federation of American Scientists’ new Impetus Institute for Metascience. My work focuses on building and strengthening ties between metascience practitioners and policymakers, with the ultimate goal of improving scientific research, funding, institutions, and incentive structures through experimentation.

Before joining FAS, I was an Assistant Professor of Clinical Biostatistics at Columbia University and a research scientist at the New York State Psychiatric Institute; my academic research touched on statistical methodology, medical imaging, and mental health. Throughout my career, I have aimed to produce cross-cutting and interdisciplinary work, and am always excited to connect about potential collaborations (so feel free to send me a note at jdworkin@fas.org!)

Some of my favorite recent team-ups have included developing statistical methods for multiple sclerosis research with Taki Shinohara, investigating inequities in scientific citation practices with Dani Bassett and Perry Zurn, and delving into job automation and skill networks with the folks at The Pudding. You can find a few examples of my most recent work below, and a more comprehensive list on the research and projects pages.
