Bianca De Stavola's main research activities involve the understanding, development and implementation of statistical methods for long-term longitudinal studies, with specific applications to life-course epidemiology. As these often involve causal enquiries, in particular related to understanding pathways towards disease development, mediation analysis is her main interest.
Bianca over the years has developed several methodological and substantive collaborations, in particular with Rhian Daniel (University Cardiff), Isabel dos Santos Silva (London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine), George Ploubidis (UCL CLS), and Nadia Micali (UCL GOS ICH).
Bianca De Stavola recently joined UCL GOS ICH after 23 years at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine where she was Professor of Biostatistics in the Department of Medical Statistics and co-Director of the Centre for Statistical Methodology.
