Why research in statistics and health economics is so cool
Well those holidays were pretty short in my opinion! Anyway, time to get back to work and, in fact, it has been already a while since the normal routine started. I try to keep my posts updated as much as I can but with the approaching of the next academic year things are a bit hectic.
Holidays! Yes, really holidays! This year has been particularly difficult and hard for many people and I am no exception. With the moving to Maastricht, the need to familiarise with a new working and living environment, the lockdown measures, the new teaching and administrative tasks, and mnay other little things, I arrived at the end of the academic year almost annihilated.
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.
