Chakra Budhathoki


Chakra Budhathoki is a broadly trained applied statistician, an expert in the design, analysis, and reporting of both experimental research and observational studies. He has worked as a biostatistician with biomedical researchers in heart failure and HIV/AIDS and with nursing researchers in psychiatric nursing, HIV/AIDS, and cancer, among other topics. Dr. Budhathoki teaches Biostatistics and Data Management/Analytics courses in the Master’s Program and DNP Program. He also provides statistical consultation to faculty members and students, especially PhD nursing students on their dissertation projects. Because the demand for rigor in research methods and statistics increases every day, he believes that all research, quality improvement, and evidence-based practice initiatives should be based on a sound methodological ground to be useful to patients and society in general. Dr. Budhathoki is a member of American Statistical Association and International Biometric Society.
