Rianne Jacobs



I am a biostatistician, lecturer and research statistician. I have a strong background in mathematical statistics which I obtained during my bachelor and masters studies. In my PhD research, I moved from mathematical to applied statistics. I enjoy looking for the theoretical statistical problem hiding in an applied research question. My statistical research experience include statistical distribution theory, Bayesian statistics, extreme value theory and non-parametric methods. I am interested in applying my statistical expertise to medical and health related research areas. I would like to research, develop and apply new statistical theory motivated by questions from both the applied and the theoretical side of statistics – developing statistics to solve applied problems as well as purely for the sake of beautiful statistical theory.
