The FNR is pleased to share the newest podcast in the collaboration with Lëtzebuerger Journal. Titled ‘Mäin Element’, the series features researchers in Luxembourg talking about their lives and their passion for science, showing a glimpse of the people behind the science. The 12th episode features epidemiologist Guy Fagherazzi.
In this episode of “Mäin Element”, we visit the Luxembourg Institute of Health and meet Guy Fagherazzi. In this episode of “Mäin Element”, Max meets Guy Fagherazzi, a trained epidemiologist and statistician. He wants to use digital technologies called “Deep Digital Phenotyping” to simplify patients’ lives. He explains, among other things, what it is like, as a relatively young researcher, to lead a whole team at the Luxembourg Institute of Health, and how the pandemic turned his research plans upside down. We also find out what information can be gathered simply by listening to a person’s voice, what research and sports have in common, and which NBA star he was fascinated by in his youth.
