Biography of POL ROVIRA

“I am a Physicist and Statistical modeler working as a researcher in the Public Health Agency of Catalonia, in a center currently being designated as a Collaborating Center of the World Health Organization European Region.


I have been working in the quantification of incidence and mortality of diseases caused by alcohol consumption, mainly applied to countries of the WHO European Region. My last applications specially focused on the relationship between alcohol and different cancer types, estimating how the changes in alcohol control policies such as increases in taxation would affect cancer incidence and mortality.”
