Project description

The aim of this project is to come up with flexible, robust and efficient statistical methods for evaluating the effect of time-varying treatment strategies or policies, which match the complexities of large electronic health registers. The results will be broadly useful to policy makers and companies who wish to use ‘big data’ to evaluate interventions.
