About Inbal Billie Nahum-Shani
Inbal Billie Nahum-Shani is an Associate Professor at the University of Michigan’s Institute for Social Research and a co-director of the Data-science for Dynamic Decision-making Center (d3c) at the University of Michigan. Her research focuses on developing and employing behavioral theory and novel methodology to construct adaptive interventions; these interventions modify the type, timing, dose, or delivery mode of support in order to address the unique and changing needs of individuals. Of particular interest are interventions that leverage digital technology to adapt intervention delivery to individuals in real-time, in their daily lives. Her work includes developing and extending experimental designs that can inform the construction of adaptive interventions, including Factorial designs, Sequential Multiple Assignment Randomized Trials (SMARTs), Micro-Randomized Trials (MRTs) and Hybrid Experimental Designs (HEDs). She is providing leadership to several funded projects, including an NIH/NIDA funded P50 Center of Excellence to develop novel experimental designs and data analytic methods for adapting and personalizing services for drug use and HIV.
