Ludovic Trinquart, PhD

Adjunct Associate Professor, Biostatistics - Boston University School of Public Health


I am Adjunct Associate Professor of Biostatistics at the Boston University School of Public Health. I received my Ph.D. in biostatistics from Paris Descartes University. I graduated with an MPH from Paris-Sud University and with an MSc from Paris Institute of Statistics (Institut de Statistiques de l’Universite de Paris, Pierre and Marie Curie University).
My ongoing research is focused on the development of statistical methods for survival data. I am developing methods for the restricted mean survival time. I also am assessing how these methods can improve communication of evidence. I also am conducting research on the epidemiology of atrial fibrillation. My current research is focused on the lifetime risk for developing atrial fibrillation and its complications, through analyses of cohort study data, in particular the Framingham Heart Study. I have made sustained contributions to the methodology of meta-analysis of clinical trials and observational studies. Finally, I am conducting meta-research; I am querying the processes of knowledge generation in biomedical research, through quantitative epistemology.
