Dr. Sheilah Hogg-Johnson is a professor at the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College and an associate professor at the Dalla Lana School of Public Health at the University of Toronto. She recently retired from her position as a senior scientist and biostatistician at the Institute for Work & Health (IWH).
As a senior scientist at the Institute, Hogg-Johnson applied her statistical expertise to “big data” to help decision-makers in Ontario’s workers’ compensation and occupational health and safety (OHS) systems evaluate and improve a wide range of programs. One of the longest tenured scientists at the IWH, Hogg-Johnson also led for many years the Institute’s data management and analysis team—the statistical backbone to other Institute for Work & Health researchers, helping them design, carry out and interpret their workplace health studies.
Hogg-Johnson holds a PhD in biostatistics from the University of Toronto and a master’s of mathematics from the University of Waterloo. She is a specialist in statistical methodology and prognostic modelling.
