Baptiste Leurent

Assistant Professor in Medical Statistics and Epidemiology, NIHR Doctoral Research Fellow


I graduated from the Statistical Institute of the Parisian University in 2006, and have since worked for different medical research institutions in Thailand and the UK. I joined LSHTM in 2013, to work for the Tropical Epidemiology Group and the ACT Consortium. In 2015, I started a NIHR Doctoral Fellowship on missing data in economic evaluation. 




I teach on MSc modules (Analysis and Design of Research Studies, Statistical Methods in Epidemiology) and short courses (Advanced Course in Epidemiological Analysis). I have also contributed to distance-learning teaching, and reviewed the Statistics with Computing module.


I am currently studying for a PhD in the Medical Statistics Department, looking at sensitivity analyses for departure from the Missing At Random assumption in cost-effectiveness evaluation.  This PhD is under the supervision of Prof. James Carpenter and Dr. Manuel Gomes. For the past two years, I have worked with the ACT Consortium at LSHTM, looking at improving the use of artemisinin-based combination therapy for malaria. I have a general interest in statistical methodology research, particularly applied methods for the analysis of clinical trials. I have worked in different medical areas, such as primary care, psychiatry, palliative care, and HIV.
