Sophie Pilleron

Marie Curie Research Fellow

Sophie Pilleron is an epidemiologist with expertise in cancer in older people. She is currently affiliated with the Big Data Institute at the University of Oxford after working in New Zealand where she was a visiting researcher at the Department of Public Health at the University of Otago. Her current research aims to describe the age disparity in colon and lung cancer survival in New Zealand and England thanks to a Marie Curie Individual fellowship from the European Commission.

Sophie Pilleron worked, and still collaborates with, the International Agency for Research on Cancer to describe the cancer burden in the older people, both globally and regionally.

In another life, Sophie Pilleron led studies on nutrition-related topics, diabetes in low-and-middle-income countries, and dementia in sub-Saharan Africa.
