Erick A. Chacón Montalvan

Erick has now completed his PhD studies with CHICAS!

I am a PhD student in Statistics and Epidemiology in the Faculty of Health and Medicine at Lancaster University supervised by Dr. Benjamin Taylor and Dr. Luke Parry. Previously, I obtained my Master of Science degree in Statistics at Lancaster University and my Bachelor and Engineering degree at Universidad Nacional de Ingeniería.

My current research involves developing spatio-temporal methods to understand and predict the impact of extreme hydro-climatic events on the public health of remote cities in the Brazilian Amazon rainforest. With use of our models, we intend to develop an early warning system to help the government take more informative decisions.
