Summary

 

Summary

I am a senior lecturer in Biostatistics in the Department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics and I am part of the MRC-PHE Centre for Environment and Health (http://www.environment-health.ac.uk/)

After working on gene expression for two years as a postdoc I moved to epidemiology and collaborated on several projects studying the impact of environmental exposures on chronic diseases.

In 2010 I became lecturer and in 2015 I was promoted to senior lecturer. My main interests are related on the methodological aspects of environmental exposure estimation and on spatial and spatio-temporal models for disease mapping and for risk assessment.

I am PI on an MRC Methodology project looking at data integration from cohorts/administrative registries and exploring how propensity score can be used to adjust for unmeasured confounders in ecological studies.

have a special interest in novel computational methods for Bayesian inference and I have recently written a book on the Integrated Nested Laplace approximation (INLA) for spatial and spatio-temporal applications.
