Adam Carle, MA, PhD, is a clinically and quantitatively trained investigator who uses advanced statistical methods to study health disparities among adults and children, especially children with special health care needs.
Dr. Carle uses latent variable models like item response theory, confirmatory factor analysis, structural equation modeling, and multilevel models to examine health disparities across traditionally underserved and underrepresented groups (e.g., US minorities). He seeks to better understand individual and contextual variables in comparative effectiveness research, health disparities, and public policy for children at individual, local, state, and national levels.
Dr. Carle received his PhD in 2003 from Arizona State University. Following his doctoral degree, Dr. Carle completed a a two-year post-doctoral appointment at the US Census Bureau. He spent three years as an assistant professor of psychology at the University of North Florida before joining Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center.
