Robert Mahar received a PhD in Biostatistics at the University of Melbourne in 2019, following completion of a Master of Biostatistics at the University of Queensland in 2014. He is a statistician with a research focus on applied causal inference and epidemiology, Bayesian methods, and novel clinical trial design, with a particular emphasis on applications in cancer.

He joined the University of Melbourne in January 2019 as Research Fellow in Biostatistics and holds a joint appointment to both the Centre for Epidemiology and Biostatistics at the Melbourne School of Population and Global Health and the Victorian Comprehensive Cancer Centre. His doctoral research focused on developing new models of lung function from multiple-breath washout and complex tidal flow waveform data, with an emphasis on computational Bayesian and spectral analytical methods. Prior to his doctoral studies he was an analyst in the strategic consulting, financial, and public health sectors.
