E.I. Kritsotakis


Short Bio

I was appointed Associate Professor of Biostatistics in the Medical School of the University of Crete in December 2018, following five years as tenured Lecturer (Assistant Professor) in Epidemiology and Medical Statistics at the University of Sheffield, UK (2014-2018), where I maintain an honorary post as Senior Lecturer.

My first degree was in Mathematics (University of Crete, Greece, 1998) followed by a Master's degree in Statistics and Operational Research (University of Essex, UK, 2000). I underwent training in Applied Epidemiology at the Rollins School of Public Health, Emory University and the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (Atlanta, USA, 2005). I earned my PhD degree from the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Crete in 2007.

My research focus is on statistical and epidemiological principles and methods for the design,  analysis and reporting of clinical epidemiology research in healthcare settings. My record includes population-based studies of disease burden, prognostic research and clinical prediction models, quasi-experimental and time series studies, systematic reviews, meta-analyses and epidemiological surveillance systems with special interest on healthcare-associated infections, multi-drug resistant pathogens and antimicrobial drugs.

In acknowledgement of my research contribution, I was awarded with the William Jarvis Award by the Society for Healthcare Epidemiology of America in 2009. During 2010-12 and 2015-17, I actively contributed in the works of ECDC's European Network for Healthcare-associated Infection Surveillance (HAI-Net), serving as member of the National Coordination Team to design and implement the first two national prevalence studies of healthcare-associated infections and antimicrobial use in acute-care hospitals in Greece.

I was awarded the status of Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (FHEA), UK, in 2017 recognising my experience, practice and leadership of teaching and learning. 

In 2018, I received the highest professional award of Chartered Statistician (CStat) by the Royal Statistical Society, UK.

In May 2022, I was appointed Associate Editor of the journal "Public Health" of the Royal Society of Public Health.
