Why research in statistics and health economics is so cool
I have recently been invited to give a talk about my R package missingHE at the R for HTA summer workshop 2021, and I would like to spend a couple of words to describe what was my experience at this event which for me was a first-time.
This month is extremely busy and I seriously need a week of days made by 34 hours each in order to avoid any delay. Apart from the usual teaching which is finally coming close to the end of this period (hopefully by the end of the month) but which kept me busy at least 3 days per week, there have been lots of meetings and work to do.
A quick update from me about a couple of things, some good, some bad and other … ugly. Let’s start with the good. I have found the time to work on some old projects which are finally progressing in their late stages.
Hello everbody and it is good to be back after a nice and cozy Easter break. As probably most of you, I was too forced to spend my Easter holidays away from my family this year but at least here in the Netherlands the weather was pretty nice during the Easter weekend and I was able to enjoy a nice walk through the city center of Maastricht which was an amazing experience.
Here we are again. Except now it feels like a very nice spring time here in Maastricht with beautiful sunny days an warm weather. The picture does not really represent the environment in this region of the Netherlands (called Limburg), but I thought it was a very nice picture to put as thumbnail.
Hello everybody, it is time for some quick updates about myself and what I have been doing the past month. Well, essentially, I have been crazy busy doing lots of teaching on statistics-related subjects, which is the primary reason I was hired here in Maastricth.
Happy new year everybody! Yeah, I know it already almost February but I have been incredibly busy the past few weeks after the Xmas break. From getting familiar with the courses I am teaching this term to providing consultancy advice on statistical problems for students from FHML at UM.
It is Xmas again! Wow, how quickly time flies. The situation here in the Netherlands is not ideal as the number of infected is on the rise again and the government has declared a full lockdown until January 19th.
Finally some exciting updates! I really need some good news after all that happened this year. So, first of all I have recentely found out that one of the paper I co-authored got published early this year but I actually forgot to check it.
Hello dear readers! I have finally come back from my lethargy with a new exciting posts about why the job of health economists, although inevitably involving some statistics, can be very different from what standard statisticians typically do.
