Arseniy Yashkin

Research Scientist


I have a rich background in the fields of public health, health economics, and health services research, with over 10 years of experience of working with survey and administrative data including Medicare 5% claims, Medicare 5% Part D, the National Long Term Care Survey (NLTCS), the Health and Retirement Study (HRS), the Medicare Current Beneficiary Survey (MCBS), The Surveillance, Epidemiology and End Results Medicare-linked data (SEER-M), the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES), the National Health Interview Survey (NHIS), the Russia Longitudinal Monitoring Survey (RLMS), and a self-compiled database based on information drawn from the Demographic and Health Surveys (DHS) and the Multiple Indicator Cluster Survey (MICS). I have some experience with genetic analysis using genetic data from the HRS. I have extensive knowledge of both high-level programming languages (FORTRAN, in both serial and parallel environments) and common commercially available statistical software packages (SAS, STATA, R) as well as experience with the development of software packages for academic use.
