Mr. Hodge is the chief statistician at the Child and Adolescent Neurodevelopment Initiative (CANDI) in the Department of Psychiatry at UMASS Medical School. His primary interest is biostatistical data analysis of human brain imaging studies in order to further understand brain structure and function, especially in a broad spectrum of neurodevelopmental disorders (such as early onset bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, and autism). One initiative of this program is joint collaboration with the Neuroinformatics Program in the Department of Psychiatry, under the direction of Prof. David N. Kennedy. Together, they are developing an environment for the pooling of brain imaging data obtained from the research community. They are using this common pool of data to address massively multivariate statistical questions concerning, for example, the normative neuroanatomic development of the brain through childhood and the changes that are associated with mental illness.
