Andy Shapiro is a data scientist in the Program Operations Branch of the National Toxicology Program (NTP). He has ten years of experience in the for-profit and government sectors performing data-analysis and modeling for environmental risk and exposure assessments. He has developed web-based applications for literature-based data capture for use in human-health assessments of chemicals, and is familiar with dose-response modeling analysis. He is interested in open-source software, data-analysis and visualization, and enjoys using the Python, Javascript, and R programming languages.

Mr. Shapiro received both his B.S.P.H and M.S.P.H degrees in the Department of Environmental Sciences and Engineering from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill School of Public Health, in 2007 and 2014, respectively. He also received a graduate certificate in Bioinformatics and Computational Biology. Additionally, he interned at the World Health Organization International Agency for Research on Cancer (WHO/IARC) in 2014.
