I am an applied medical statistician with long-standing interest in the application of statistics to environmental and occupational health. I joined the Environmental Epidemiology Unit in 1995, having previously been Associate Professor in the Department of Occupational Health at McGill University, Montreal.
I teach statistical methods for aplication to public health research in the LSHTM and various international courses. I supervise doctoral students in the area of my research interests. I am also currently Research Degrees Directors for PHP
My research interests cover most of environmental epidemiology and the statistical methods required for it. Specific methodological research includes that on the regression analysis of time series of health events and in particular interrupted time series, and on effects of measurement errors on estimates of exposure-health relationships. Current substantive research topics of interest, on which I work in collaboration with colleagues, focus mainly on the impacts of weather and climate change on health, but also include health risks of air and water pollution, primarily in the general environment but also in occupational groups.
