Through simple descriptive statistics and linear regression techniques performed on data gathered from several studies conducted across CIDP centres, he explored potential relationships between one’s inherent characteristics and SPF results. More precisely, he investigated the influence of the individual baseline subject characteristics, namely skin color (colorimetric measurements), age, gender, and phototype on the individual SPF results.With more than five years of experience at both industry level and academia, Muzzammil Hosenally has worked on numerous projects, and has had the opportunity to apply statistics in various fields, including Insurance, Market Research, Public Health, and Clinical Trials.
