Dr. Berchuck is a Forge Scholar and statistical researcher specializing in quantitative methodologies to improve disease management and healthcare for glaucoma patients. As a member of the Visual Performance Lab in the Duke Eye Center, Dr. Berchuck’s primary research focus is to improve glaucoma progression diagnoses by developing a modeling framework that appropriately combines the various data modalities collected at clinical visits. His primary methodological interests include Bayesian methods, spatial statistics, MCMC algorithms, factor analysis, latent variable models, and causal inference.
