Mrs Gillian Flower

Research Assistant

United Kingdom

I am a statistician and epidemiologist with an interest in environmental impacts on health.

I have experience conducting survival analysis in different settings, including among transplant recipients and children born with congenital anomalies.

My current work involves using time series methods to understand temperature-related effects on mortality and morbidity risk.
