Koen Simons's Profile Picture
Dr

Koen Simons

 

Dr Koen Simons obtained a masters degree in Physics form the University of Gent and a masters degree in Statistics from the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven, focussing on sparsity and shrinkage estimators. He completed his PhD at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel, Belgium, performing simulation studies of ensemble methods with applications for short-term health effects of air pollution.



He is currently providing biostatistical advise for both clinical trials and epidemiological studies at Western Health and RMIT, and applying causal inference models to problems in health equity.

He has a preference for free/open software, R and C++; he is interested in measurement error, ensembles, causal inference and spatial statistics.
