About Daniel

Powers’ research focuses on health disparities, with a specific focus on the Hispanic infant mortality paradox and race/ethnic comparisons of change in infant mortality over time. Most of his substantive work is intertwined with his methodological interests in survival modeling, regression decomposition, age-period-cohort models, and other topics. In addition to his focus on the Hispanic paradox, Powers investigates race (black-white) differences in the sources of change in infant mortality using an age-period-cohort perspective. Powers applies state of the art statistical computing approaches to substantive problems, and is affiliate of the Population Research Center and faculty associate in the Department of Statistics and Data Sciences.
