Sofia Villar – firstname.lastname@example.org
My research aims to improve clinical trial design through the development of innovative methods that lie in the intersection between optimisation, machine learning and statistics. These methods may result in efficiency gains (i.e. smaller or faster trials) but face several practical barriers (e.g. a high computational cost) to be widely adopted. These innovations include patient-centric trials – i.e. those having an explicit goal of assigning more trial participants to superior treatments (e.g. an efficacious vaccine).
Potential PhD Projects
I am open to developing a PhD project around any of the areas I work on currently.
