Research area: Statistics / Mathematical Modelling

PhD in Mathematics obtained at UAB (2013)


David Moriña Soler, Msc, PhD is mathematician and statistician.

His area of interest is focused in mathematical modelling applied to health sciences, especially in the handling and analysis of longitudinal data, specifically time series data. He has broad experience in the design, development and analysis of clinical trials and epidemiological studies-working in several research centres, including the Technological Center in Nutrition and Health (CTNS), the Centre for Research in Environmental Epidemiology (CREAL) and the Catalan Institute of Oncology, developing new models for cancer research.

He joined BGSMath - UAB in 2018, working on the development of new mathematical and statistical models with applications to cancer epidemiology.
