Huiting Ma (Senior Data Scientist – Analyst)ORCID Google Scholar
Huiting completed her Master of Science in Statistics at the University of British Columbia, followed by a research analyst position at the Institute of Clinical Evaluative Sciences in Ontario, Canada, where she worked on large administrative databases to inform policy making. Her research interests lie in using epidemiological and biostatistical methods to conduct HIV/STI research.

She is leading observational epidemiology studies as part of the Transitions project, the Ontario HIV incidence project, and the tPAF projects. Her projects include statistical modeling, empiric estimation, and bias adjustments to parameterize and calibrate HIV transmission models in Kenya, Canada, South Africa, and Eswatini. She is also leading analyses for the Sierra Leone Ebola Disease Outbreak project.
