Invited Speaker
About the Speaker

Dr. Cécile Proust-Lima is a Director of Research in Biostatistics at the Bordeaux Population Health Research Center for the Inserm (French Institute of Health and Medical Research) and the University of Bordeaux in France. Her research mainly focuses on the development of dynamic statistical models to describe, explain and predict chronic disease progression. She has specialized over the years in the joint analysis of multivariate repeated markers and event time history with applications mainly in cerebral aging and neurodegenerative diseases (Multiple System Atrophy, Alzheimer’s Disease and related dementias). Her works often involve latent processes to translate dynamic health phenomena measured by repeated noisy markers, and latent classes to translate the heterogeneity of disease progression. Her research is highly motivated by epidemiological and clinical questions thanks to strong collaborations with epidemiologists and clinicians, and access to large cohort studies. It covers a wide range of statistical topics, from causal inference to dynamic prediction techniques, always with an emphasis on modeling and data challenges. The developments of her research group are made available in R packages (e.g., lcmm) with constant maintenance and upgrades.
