Judith D. Singer is the James Bryant Conant Professor of Education and Senior Vice Provost for Faculty Development and Diversity at Harvard University. An internationally renowned statistician and social scientist, Singers scholarly interests focus on improving the quantitative methods used in social, educational, and behavioral research. She is primarily known for her contributions to the practice of multilevel modeling, survival analysis, and individual growth modeling, and to making these and other statistical methods accessible to empirical researchers. Singer's wide-ranging interests have led her to publish across a broad array of disciplines, including statistics, education, psychology, medicine, and public health. In addition to writing and co-writing nearly 100 papers and book chapters, often with longtime collaborator John B. Willett, she has also co-written three books, most recently Applied Longitudinal Data Analysis: Modeling Change and Event Occurrence (Oxford University Press).
