Vladimir Canudas-Romo

Associate Professor, Australian National University


Field of study: Demography, Mathematics, Public Health/ Epidemiology

Specialization: Ageing, Mathematical Demography, Mortality, Health, and Longevity

Highest Degree Level:

Doctorate (Ph.D, MD), Demography, University of Groningen, The Netherlands, and Max Planck Institute for Demographic Research, Germany, 2003

Working languages:
  • - English
  • - Spanish
  • - French

Professional summary:

My research interests are: 

-    Formal demography or the existent mathematical relations between demographic measures is at the core of my interests: I continue to develop new demographic measures and methods that help explicate the observed population phenomena over time or across populations.

-     Causes of death modeling and forecasting remains among my most deep interests. Demography, and more specifically the study of mortality by causes of death, will be at the center of the forecasting debate helping experts of other fields disentangle the contribution of the new advancements in both public health and clinical practices, as well as informing about existent “Disparities” in populations.
