Dr Pierre Masselot
BSc MSc PhD
in Environmental Epidemiology and Statistics
15-17 Tavistock Place
I am co-Module organiser of the Machine Learning module (2490) taught in the Health Data Science MSc. I also lecture in this module.
In addition, I tutor in R programming modules and various statistics-related modules.
My research aims at accurately modelling the association between human health and climate and environmental exposures, including non-optimal temperature and air pollution. This includes developing new statistical methodologies, software development and application of the methods in international environmental epidemiology studies.
My methodological work seeks to include time in environmental epidemiology studies, to assess how vulnerability to exposure differ through time and between locations, with the goal to better understand the drivers of these vulnerabilities. This includes non-stationary time series and varying-coefficient modelling as well as constrained estimation.
I contributed to studies on climate-related cardiovascular mortality studies, flood streamflow forecasting, extreme weather warning system implementation, and the association between air pollutants and mortality.
