Dr. Loop is a clinical assistant professor in the Department of Biostatistics at the Gillings School and the department's Collaborative Studies Coordinating Center.

Dr. Loop attempts to reduce the burden of cardiovascular disease (CVD) by applying statistical methods and assessing their performance in unusual situations. He has experience with standard statistical methods such as regression and power calculations, as well as spatial data analysis, administrative claims databases and survival analysis with competing risks.

His statistical research has focused on the performance of methods for spatial data analysis in large national cohorts. His applied research has focused on geographic variation in risk factors for CVD, treatment patterns and outcomes in Medicare beneficiaries with heart failure, and the associations between air pollution and CVD.
