Bio Marily Oppezzo completed her doctorate in Educational Psychology at Stanford in 2013. She also is a registered dietitian and has her master's of nutritional science. She completed her dietetic internship at the Palo Alto Veterans Hospital, and currently consults as a sports dietitian for Stanford's Runsafe program.

Specifically, these areas include: using social media to motivate physical activity changes in those with or at risk for heart disease; culturally tailoring nutrition and physical activity recommendations and education materials for an Alaskan native population; how walking can be used to improve people's cognitive and creative thinking; and applying learning theories to medical education topics.

Bio I am interested in using statistical methods to understand and improve human health. I currently collaborate with investigators in the medical school in prevention, neonatology, and nutrition.

At UNC, I wrote a dissertation titled "Causal inference for binary data with interference". I wrote the R packages RI2by2 and interferenceCI to accompany papers from this dissertation.
