Amy Cochran is an assistant professor joint between the Department of Mathematics and the Department of Population Health Sciences at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. She is an applied mathematician building a cross-disciplinary research program in data science and psychiatry. Her goal is to demonstrate that mathematics can aid discovery by tackling questions that could not be addressed otherwise and generating conclusions that are stronger, more reproducible, and more generalizable. Team science is central to what she does. She is part of the Applied and Computational Math caucus and the Women’s Mental Health Program at UW-Madison and is fortunate to have fantastic clinical collaborators.
