I am an MRC ERC fellow at the Centre for Environment and Health, Imperial College. My interests encompass statistical methods and mathematical models for studying disease. The aim of my fellowship is to develop geospatial methods for disease mapping that properly account for human movement. You’re not just exposed to air pollution at your home, you are also exposed at work and places you visit. Standard geostatistical models do not account for this fact.
I have a continuing interest in infectious disease models and statistical methods for ecology. Recently this has involved developing models of contact tracing to help guide COVID-19 policy. Previously, I worked with Deirdre Hollingsworth at the Big Data Institute, University of Oxford on neglected tropical diseases. Before that I worked with the Malaria Atlas Project where I developed geostatistical disaggregation models.
Please feel free to email me to discuss stats, modelling, R or anything else. My address is timcdlucas — gmail — com. Or you can say hello on twitter @timcdlucas and @StatsForBios.
I have written a number of R packages which can be found on CRAN or on my github
