Dr. Susan A Murphy
Professor of Statistics,
Radcliffe Alumnae Professor at the Radcliffe Institute,
Harvard University and Professor of Computer Science at the Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences
Harvard University

Dr. Murphy and her lab develop data analysis methods and experimental designs to improve real time sequential decision-making in mobile health, in particular methods and algorithms that can be deployed on wearable devices, to deliver individually tailored treatments. Her lab developed the micro-randomized trial for use in developing mobile health interventions; this trial design is in use across a broad range of health areas. In these trials each participant can be randomized or rerandomized 100’s of times. Examples of micro-randomized trials that are completed or are in the field can be found at https://methodology.psu.edu/ra/adap-inter/mrt-projects#proj.

Dr. Murphy is a member of the US National Academy of Sciences and of the US National Academy of Medicine. In 2013 she was awarded a MacArthur Fellowship for her work on experimental designs to inform sequential decision making. She is a Fellow of the College on Problems in Drug Dependence, a Member of the International Statistical Institute, a Fellow of the American Statistical Association and a Fellow of the Institute of Mathematical Statistics. She is a former co-editor of the Annals of Statistics and delivered the IMS Wald Lectures in 2015. She is currently the President of the Bernoulli Society.
