Douglas Hanes, Ph.D

Dr. Hanes teaches biostatistics and research methodology at the National University of Natural Medicine and is the research biostatistician at the Helfgott Research Institute.

Before joining NUNM, he spent three years as an Assistant Professor of mathematics at the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis, then six years as Research Associate at the Legacy Clinical Research and Technology Center in Portland, Oregon, where he worked on studies addressing the vestibular system, balance, and mobility. He completed a Ph.D. in mathematics at the University of Michigan.

Dr. Hanes has worked with clinical trial data as well as survey and population data; he is especially interested in the "meta" questions of data analysis: what is the right way to gather data and use it to answer questions, and just how much faith can one put in the results?
