Peter Samai, Ph.D, MPH


Peter is an epidemiologist who has worked in public health and cancer epidemiology for the last ten years. His primary interests are in obesity, physical activity, and nutrition, and how these exposures impact the risk of cancer and chronic disease. He has worked at UNC Lineberger supporting the Carolina Breast Cancer Study and held positions at South Dakota State University and the University of Florida.

At NoviSci, he works on the epidemiology and research teams designing and implementing studies and projects. He enjoys thinking about the intersection of epidemiology, data science, and visualization to make compelling intuitions in complex data about health.

With his downtime, Peter enjoys spending time outdoors with his dog, catching live music, and is a passable darts player.
