Joel Correa da Rosa, PhD

Dr. da Rosa obtained his PhD in statistics in 2005 from the Catholic University of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil and went up the ranks to become the Director of the Laboratory of Statistics (LES-UFF) of Federal Fluminense University (UFF), Niteroi/Brazil, a position he held from 2010-2012.

From 2012-2017, Dr. da Rosa worked as a Research Associate / Biostatistician at the Rockefeller University Hospital, New York.  In late 2017, Dr. da Rosa joined the Biostatistics team at Mount Sinai Health System in New York.

Since 2014, Dr. da Rosa has been involved with review and conduct of statistical analysis on a very large keloid dataset.  His work thought multivariate analysis has led to the discovery of very interesting correlations between age of onset of keloids and a host of factors such as ethnicity and location of keloid lesions.

Dr. da Rosa is also a member of the editorial board of the Journal of Keloid Research.
