Jenine Harris earned her doctorate in public health studies and biostatistics from Saint Louis University School of Public Health in 2008 and currently teaches biostatistics courses in the Brown School public health program. Her recent research interests focus on increasing diversity in data science and improving the quality of research in public health by using reproducible research practices throughout the research process.Jenine's 2020 book, Statistics with R: Solving Problems Using Real-World Data, is an introductory statistics textbook published by Sage. The book combines statistical concepts with R coding and includes representation of women throughout as both characters and as authors of resources. Each chapter addresses a different social problem using a real-world data set. 

Harris is also an author on more than 80 peer-reviewed publications and developed and published the odds.n.ends R package available on the CRAN. In 2013, she authored An Introduction to Exponential Random Graph Modeling, which was published in the Sage Quantitative Applications in the Social Sciences series, was translated into Chinese, and is accompanied by the ergmharris R package available on the Comprehensive R Archive Network (CRAN).

Harris (@jenineharris) is the leader of R-Ladies St. Louis, which she co-founded with Chelsea West in 2017 (@rladiesstl). R-Ladies St. Louis is a local chapter of R-Ladies Global, an organization devoted promoting gender diversity in the R community.
