Prof Marta Blangiardo
I have a chair in Biostatistics and I am the Biostatistics and Data Science theme leader for the MRC Centre for Environment and Health.
I have a PhD in applied statistics and work on different modelling aspects relevant to environmental exposures (air pollution, noise, climate) and health (mostly chronic but have recently started moving towards infectious diseases, particularly in low and middle income countries). I have been also working on ecology, specifically on mosquitos estimations and species distribution.

Dr Monica Pirani
I am an assistant professor in Biostatistics and I am an investigator in the MRC Centre for Environment and Health. My research is based upon the development of Bayesian statistical methods with primary application to environmental and health data.
Current methodological research focuses on spatial and spatio-temporal statistics, time-series analysis, methods for the integration of multi-scale sources of data and models for understanding the health consequences of exposure to (multiple) pollutants and changes in climate.

Dr Garyfallos Konstantinoudis
I have a MRC skills development fellowship. I am developing a framework of analysis using Bayesian spatiotemporal models for risk assessment and quantification of associated economic costs. I am using these models to estimate the current and future burden of temperature-related respiratory health in the UK. I am also building shiny apps and softwares to communicate results to stakeholders and public health experts. This is an interdisciplinary project with several national and international collaborations including Prof Baio and Dr Mineli (co-supervisors) and also with Dr Gasparrini, Prof Schuhmacher, Dr Bhatt, Dr Ballester and Dr Vicedo-Cabrera.

Dr Brandon Parkes
I am a research associate in statistics for environmental epidemiology. I am currently working on several small area disease mapping projects using Bayesian smoothing and evaluating cluster detection methods with a view to implementation on a retrospective cancer surveillance study using English cancer registry data. I am also developing the Rapid Inquiry Facility software https://github.com/smallAreaHealthStatisticsUnit/rapidInquiryFacility , a tool for exploratory disease mapping and risk analysis.
Dr Niloofar Shoari
I am an MRC Early Career Research Fellow. I use advanced Bayesian methods to understand the health effects of neighbourhood-level environmental exposures in vulnerable population such as children.

Ms Abi Riley
I am a first year PhD student funded by the MRC Centre for Environment and Health. My PhD is on spatio-temporal methods for the surveillance of non-communicable disease. Currently I am focusing on climate change and land use geostatistical models, with a plan to look at mental and cognitive health effects.
