Dr Jose Romeo PhD in Statistics

Research Officer

SHORE Centre

Jose Romeo (Pepe), is a researcher in Statistics, specialised in survival analysis, interested in applying statistical models for decision-making in public-health and social sciences. He holds a Statistical Engineering degree (University of Santiago, Chile) and a PhD in Statistics (University of Sao Paulo, Brazil). Since December 2016, he works at SHORE providing statistical expertise on quantitative research projects led by social and public-health researchers on topics including alcohol consumption and policy and drugs trends. He provides advice on research design and analyses as grant applications are developed, data management and statistical analyses and on finding dissemination through peer-reviewed publications.
