Carrie Bennette

Data Scientist & Data Visualization Designer

Hi, I'm Carrie. Nice to meet you.

I'm a biostatistician and health economist by training and a data visualization designer at heart. I use statistical and mathematical models to conduct research that informs domestic and global health policy. Over the past 12+ years, I've worked with academics, non-profit organizations, tech startups and large corporations to discover and communicate data-driven insights in a visually engaging and effective way.

Data Scientist

I leverage my PhD-level training in biostatistics and econometrics plus industry experience working as data scientist to ensure all analyses are statistically sound and scientifically rigorous.


  • Survival Analyses
  • Risk Prediction
  • Data Wrangling
  • Multilevel Modeling
  • Missing Data
  • Analysis of Survey Data
  • Machine Learning
  • Time Series Analyses

Data Visualization Designer

I create both static and interactive visualizations for use in print and online. I love to make standard charts look beautiful as well as design completely custom visualizations to tell a unique story.

Tools I use:

  • R/RStudio
  • Adobe Illustrator
  • D3.js
  • Sublime, GitHub & iTerm2
  • Pen & Paper

Data Visualization Portfolio

Here are a few data visualizations I've created recently:


A complete list of my peer-reviewed publications (more than 100) is available on Google Scholar. My research interests are broad and span biostatstics, outcomes research, data sharing, decision analytic modeling, machine learning and policy evaluation. Below are links to some of my favorite papers:
