Donald Hedeker’s main area of expertise is in the development and use of
advanced statistical methods for clustered and longitudinal data, with particular
emphasis on mixed-effects models. He is the primary author of four freeware
computer programs for mixed-effects analysis: MIXREG for normal-theory
models, MIXOR for dichotomous and ordinal outcomes, MIXNO for nominal
outcomes, and MIXPREG for counts.
In 2000, Hedeker was named a fellow of the American Statistical Association,
the highest honor in his field. He was also recognized as a University Scholar by
the University of Illinois that same year. He serves as an associate editor for
Statistics in Medicine and the Journal of Statistical Software. He has been the
principal investigator (PI), co-PI, or co-investigator on many research grants
funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the Centers for Disease
Control and Prevention.
