Oyelola Adegboye is a chartered biostatistician, an experienced public health researcher and clinical research biostatistician at the Australian Institute of Tropical Health and Medicine at James Cook University. He obtained his PhD in Statistics from the University of the Western Cape, South Africa and Master of Science degree in biostatistics from Hasselt University, Belgium. His background includes advanced knowledge and skills in biostatistics, spatiotemporal statistics, environmental and exposure science, disease mapping and spatial epidemiology, correlated and multi-level modelling with applications in population and public health studies as well as strong programming skills in R and SAS.

His work centres on developing and integrating innovative statistical approaches to advance public health and health care research. He focuses on exploring geographical variations in infectious and non-infectious diseases, covariance structures in spatio-temporal models, an/isotropy issues in spatial data, and complex correlation structures in marginal and mixed models. His methodological research interests fall in the area of correlation/covariance structure in public health and ecological data.

He is well-published in a wide range of multidisciplinary peer-reviewed journals such as Statistical Methods in Medical Research, Journal of the Royal Statistical Society and Science of Total Environment. His publication titled”Analysis of spatial data with a nested correlation structure” was one of the top 20 most read articles in 2018/2019 in Journal of the Royal Statistical Society, Series C. His recent works have been receiving media coverage on 7news and the national tribune. He is also an editorial board member of Biomedical Central Public Health journal and SAGE’s Therapeutic Advances in Infectious Disease and a reviewer for many journals.

Oyelola is a fellow of the Royal Statistical Society and the institute of management consultants.
