Biography

In 2009 I joined the Department of Mathematical Sciences at the University of Essex. I contribute to the ESRC Business and Local Government Data Research Centre and support as medical statistician the NIHR Research Design Service for the East of England. I am a member of the Institute for Analytics and Data Science (IADS) and the Essex Biomedical Sciences Institute (EBSI). I retain to be an external member of the Medical School, University of Erlangen-Nuremberg. President of the International Federation of Classification Societies (IFCS) (2018-19), president of the European Association for Data Science (EuADS) (2018), president of the GfKl Data Science Society (2013-19), and member of the committee of the British Classification Society (BCS) (2012 onwards). Memberships: British Classification Society (BCS); European Association for Data Science (EuADS); GfKl Data Science Society; International Biometric Society (IBS); Royal Statistical Society (RSS). I am member of the editorial board of the Archives of Data Science Series A, Journal of Classification and Methods of Information in Medicine and an associated editor of Behaviormetrika,
