Group | Frequentist Modelling

Students attending a course in statistics

The group operates the data centre of the Swiss Cohort Study on Air Pollution and Lung and Heart Diseases in Adults (SAPALDIA). It develops models for studying the long-term effects of air pollution on population health, and supports and supervises analyses conducted within SAPALDIA.

The group conducts time-series modelling of the short-term effects of air pollution and also contributes to the development of spatio-temporal models of air pollutants in Switzerland. Moreover, the group is linked to clinical research projects, notably in neurology, and specialised in supporting clinically oriented projects within the Swiss TPH data team. The group runs statistics courses for the medical curriculum and administers two master level courses in the Faculty of Science and in two postgraduate courses.
