Title : The statistical analysis of infectious disease data. (R-8140)
Abstract: Infectious disease in general, HIV/AIDS and Malaria in particular are major public health problems of Africa. Thus this project will focus on developing a data analysis workflow in order to analyse complex data sets arising from HIV/Malaria studies and to extract knowledge out of them. The PhD research consists of two parts. The first part is focused on the analysis of a longitudinal observation clinical database on patients receiving HIV care in Ethiopia. In the second part of the PhD, we will explore a state-of-the-art statistical framework for analyzing longitudinal (observational and experimental) non Gaussian data arising from entomological malaria studies and we will investigate the use of Bayesian variable selection (BVS) modelling framework for estimation, inference and model selection, while adjusting for model uncertainty.
Period of project : 1/09/2017to21/09/2017
