I am a biostatistician and epidemiologist with interests in methodology, applied research in various epidemiological and public health topics, and software development.
My methodological work focuses on the development of study designs and statistical methods, applied in particular to time series methods, quasi-experimental studies, and survival analysis. I have contributed to the development and extensions of a number of statistical techniques, such as distributed lag models, smoothing methods and meta-analytical models. My substantive research covers several of areas, from investigations of the health effects of environmental or occupational factors to evaluation of public health interventions. I am a strong advocate of open science and reproducible research, and have contributed with the implementation of statistical methods in freely-available software and with release of code in public repositories.
My current research focuses on development of novel study designs for individual and small-area analyses, use of novel remote sensing and mobile technologies in epidemiology, spatio-temporal modelling of environmental exposures and risks, and health impact projections for climate change.
