Professor of Statistics and of Environmental Earth System Science, Emeritus
BioDr. Switzer's research interests are in the development of statistical tools for the environmental sciences. Recent research has focused on the interpretation of environmental monitoring data, design of monitoring networks, detection of time trends in environmental and climatic paramenters, modeling of human exposure to pollutants, statistical evaluation of numerical climate models and error estimation for spatial mapping.
BioLaura Symul has obtained her PhD in computational biology from the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL), in Switzerland, where she has worked on the molecular regulation of the circadian clock. In particular she explored the regulation of rhythmic gene expression and protein translation combining analyses of -omics data with mathematical models describing the regulatory dynamics to infer quantities otherwise not measurable.
Laura Symul has also specialized in the visualization of data and, during her industry experience, has helped companies to take data-driven decisions.
As a postdoctoral fellow, her research focuses on women's health and menstrual health in particular. This includes research on fertility, on cycle-related symptoms and on drivers of changes in vaginal microbiome communities. She uses a combination of self-tracked data from mobile phone apps and devices and clinical multi-omics data.
