Eleanor Axson is a Research Assistant in Statistics and Epidemiology and doctoral candidate at the National Heart and Lung Institute.

Eleanor's current research uses electronic health records to investigate the interplay of COPD and heart failure and the resulting patient and health system outcomes.

Eleanor earned a Master of Public Health in Epidemiology with an Emphasis in Methods and Applications from the University of Michigan (Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA) in 2017. Her thesis investigated the relationship between biologic and psychosocial determinants of telomere length and resulting health outcomes and ageing in adolescents.

Previously, she earned a Bachelor of Science magna cum laude in Cell and Molecular Biology with a Concentration in Chemistry from John Carroll University (University Heights, Ohio, USA) in 2015 and studied Comparative Sociology at the Danish Institute for Study Abroad (Copenhagen, Denmark) in 2014.
