Speaking

My next speaking engagement will be at eRum 2018, in Budapest, 14-16 May, giving a short talk about synthetic populations in R using the synthpop package.


Planning an event?

I’ve been something of a fixture on the international speaking circuit in various topics, such as

  • computational epidemiology and novel computational methods for predicting epidemics,
  • biosecurity, biodefense and the Next Big One,
  • technology augmenting healthcare, and how to do it well – both from a patient and a clinician perspective,
  • pharmacovigilance and next generation solutions from Phase I to after-market semiactive surveillance,
  • analytics of large scale data, especially Bayesian methods for association mining, and
  • for cleared audiences only: WMD decommissioning, especially the use of ZKPs for verification and verifying

I’d love to speak at your next event! Do give me a shout to see what we can work out.
