Nicholas P. Jewell is Professor of Biostatistics and Statistics at the University of California, Berkeley. Since arriving at Berkeley in 1981, he has held various academic and administrative positions, most notably serving as Vice Provost from 1994 to 2000. He's also served as an Assistant Professor of Statistics at Princeton University (1979–1981), and held academic appointments at the University of Edinburgh, Oxford University, the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, and at the University of Kyoto. In 2007, he was a Fellow at the Rockefeller Foundation Bellagio Study Center in Italy.
Dr. Jewell is a Fellow of the American Statistical Association, the Institute of Mathematical Statistics, and the American Association for the Advancement of Science. He received the 2012 Marvin Zelen Leadership Award in Statistical Science from Harvard University. He is the 2005 winner of the Snedecor Award from COPSS, and won the Distinguished Teaching Award from the University of California, Berkeley's School of Public Health in 2004. In 2000, he was honored by the Director's Award from the Federal Emergency Management Agency for providing "extraordinary leadership and vision in implementing strategies that enhance the disaster resistance of the University of California, Berkeley, and universities throughout America." In addition the 2005 Alfred E. Alquist Award was given to UC Berkeley's SAFER program that he launched and led for many years.
He was educated at the University of Edinburgh where he received a first class Honours degree in Applied Mathematics in 1973, and a doctorate in Mathematics in 1976. Immediately following his graduate program he was appointed to a Harkness Fellowship from 1976 to 1978 which he held at the University of California, Berkeley and at Stanford University.

Infectious diseases, specifically HIV; chronic disease epidemiology; environmental epidemiology; survival analysis; human rights statistics
As a biostatistician, my research focuses on the application of novel statistical techniques to the design, analysis and interpretation of data arising from public health and human disease studies. From a statistical point of view I am interested in survival analysis-- particularly current status data, statistical methods for epidemiology--particularly for (i) infectious diseases and (ii) environmental exposures, causal inference in intervention studies, survey methods and longitudinal data analysis, and applications of statistics to molecular and cell biology. My work is motivated by application of such statistical techniques most recently to studies of HIV disease and AIDS including intervention trials to reduce HIV transmission in Africa, the impact of pesticide exposure to pregnancy outcomes and infant neurodevelopment, measuring key factors in epidemic growth in situations such as SARS, assessing drug safety with particular interest in the adverse cardiovascular side effects of Cox-2 inhibitors, the measurement of PBDEs in peregrine falcon eggs in California, and the assessment of civilian casualties in times of conflict.
