Lionel Voirol

Ph. D. Candidate in Statistics
Geneva School of Economics and Management
University of Geneva, Switzerland

I am currently a Ph.D. Candidate in Statistics at the University of Geneva advised by Prof. Maria-Pia Victoria-Feser and Prof. Stéphane Guerrier.
I previously received a M.Sc. in Business Analytics from the University of Geneva in 2019 and a B.Sc. in Economics & Management from the same university in 2017.

My research focuses on developing statistical methods that find their motivation in real-world applications across diverse fields such as engineering and health science. By fostering interdisciplinary collaborations, I aim to create new avenues for impactful discoveries and novel approaches to data analysis in the era of big data, while accounting for the increasing complexity of statistical and machine-learning models employed for inference and prediction. I place great emphasis on implementing these methods in open-source software, ensuring reproducibility of results and democratizing access to advanced tools and methodologies for data analysis in complex and large-scale datasets.

Research interests:

  • Time series analysis & Signal Processing
  • Longitudinal data analysis & Generalized Mixed Linear Models
  • Applied & Computational Statistics
  • Machine Learning
