remontetl I graduated in Applied Mathematics and Sociology (University XI, Paris, France) in 1992 then worked for four years on non-linear mixed models for growth curves in an INSERM research unit in epidemiology. In 1998, I integrated the Department of Biostatistics (Hospices Civils de Lyon, France) in which I worked for 15 years with Professor Jacques Esteve in the field of statistical methods for descriptive cancer epidemiology. The Department being in charge of producing the French cancer epidemiological statistics (at the national and sub-national level), my current main responsibility is to coordinate this activity which involves the development and implementation of statistical methods for estimating incidence, mortality, survival, and net survival using, in particular GAM and penalized survivals models.
