Current Research Interest

Andrea Knezevic joined Memorial Sloan Kettering in 2017, following 8 years of research at the Emory University Department of Biostatistics & Bioinformatics. Andrea has experience in design, implementation and analysis of clinical trials, as well as retrospective and prospective observational studies. Her analytical expertise is in survival analysis and model building for explanatory and predictive modeling. Her primary clinical collaborations at MSKCC are with oncologists in the Genitourinary Service. Andrea’s biostatistical research interests include survival analysis in the presence of non-proportional hazards and methods for handling incomplete outcome data in competing risks analysis. Andrea serves as a Co-Chair of the Biostatistics Protocol Review Committee (BPRC), and leads the Biostatistics Master’s Seminar Series. She serves as an invited statistical reviewer for the Journal of the National Cancer Institute (JNCI) and JNCI Cancer Spectrum.
