Biography

Charles DiMaggio, PhD,is an injury epidemiologist whose NIH and CDC-funded work includes describing and analyzing the epidemiology of pediatric pedestrian injuries for the New York City Department of Transportation, establishing a surveillance program to track and explain the behavioral health effects of the terrorist attacks of September 11th, 2001 in New York, and investigating the developmental and behavioral effects of anesthesia on young children. He has an active interest in the application of epidemiological approaches like Bayesian and spatial models to large data sets, and teaches introductory and advanced methods using the SAS and R programming languages. Dr. DiMaggio's previous positions include chief research scientist with the Nassau County, New York, Department of Health where he worked on a variety of projects including bioterrorism preparedness, syndromic surveillance, and health disparities, and as chief physician assistant and director of research for the emergency department at Mt.
