Wolfson Institute of Population Health

Dr Milena Falcaro


Senior Statistician



I am a researcher with extensive experience in medical statistics and epidemiology. I have developed expertise in both applied and methodological research, particularly with electronic health records, complex longitudinal studies and large population-based registry data. 

Before joining the Wolfson Institute of Population Health in September 2023, I held research positions at the University of Manchester, LSHTM, UCL and King’s College London.


Research Interests:

- Survival analysis
- Methods for missing values
- Statistical modelling
- Simulation studies
- Development of statistical software, especially in Stata
- Cancer epidemiology and prevention
- Population-based registry data and electronic health records
